“Innovation: a fad or a new balance point?” by Michel Judkiewicz
“We are in a transition period that sees the obsolescence of old models and the emergence of new paradigms.

To tackle it, innovation will be a crucial but delicate weapon.
The purpose is here to try defining, demystifying and structuring the concept of innovation in order to adopt a common language and to avoid the wrong and fuzzy interpretations that open the door to subjectivity since an innovative world implies not only the importance of knowledge, but also of know-how, being and becoming."D.
