Innovation has become a core focus area for all successful organizations. To ensure long-term survival, an enterprise must make innovation part of day-to-day business, thus enabling desired revenue stability and growth. Two major forms of innovation exist: Business Model Innovation and Technology Innovation. Both require the change of existing business processes or the development of new business processes. Business Process Innovation is a key success factor for the next generation enterprise. Companies need to create an environment that encourages and enables process innovation.
