Difference between Innovation and Invention
Seems like everyone is on the VC bashing trail these days. Nothing wrong with doing that (like Paul Graham has with his article ) but it would be good if you can be thoughtful about it. Bart Stuck and Michael Weingarten of Signal Lake Partners have penned a piece called "How Venture Capital Thwarts Innovation" which is interesting but fundamentally flawed from a thesis standpoint. They are confusing the meaning of invention and innovation. They are right VC's don't fund invention but they do fund innovation. Confused? Invention, innovation, What is the difference you ask? Big one. Invention is discovering something new or novel. Innovation is taking that invention and making it into a commercially viable product/service/business. Bob Metcalfe characterizes it as "Invention is a flower, innovation is a weed."

Invention and Innovation
There is a subtle difference between these two words, but it is an important one for Business Studies students.
  • Invention if the formulation of new ideas for products or processes Innovation is all about the practical application of new inventions into marketable products or services
Innovations can fall into one of two categories:
Product (or service) innovation
As the name suggests, this is all about launching new or improved products (or services) on to the market. Advantages might include (note links to marketing)
  • Higher prices and profitability Added value Opportunity to build early customer loyalty Enhanced reputation as an innovative company Increased market share
Process Innovation
This has to do with finding better or more efficient ways of
  • producing existing products, or delivering existing services.
Advantages might include:
  • Reduced costs Improved quality More responsive customer service Greater flexibility
Possible drawbacks
  • Loss of jobs, especially if work is outsourced

    PARC was the starting point for writing the Breakthrough book, but the stories of invention and innovation are a lot bigger than PARC.


    Mark Stefik on Invention and Innovation "Breakthrough" book looks at the creative cycle. How does one prepare to become an inventor? What does an "Aha!" feel like? What do repeat inventors do? Mark Stefik and Barbara Stefik are the co-authors of the new MIT Press book, "Breakthrough: Stories and Strategies of Radical Innovation." Barbara has a doctorate in transpersonal psychology and is in private practice. Mark is an inventor at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), where he directs the Information Sciences and Technologies Laboratory. UBIQUITY: Before we talk about your new book, why don't you remind us of the history of PARC? MARK STEFIK: PARC was founded by Xerox in 1970. It was created to provide a path to the digital future and a window to Silicon Valley. PARC was chartered to explore "the office of the future." PARC was the starting point for writing the "Breakthrough" book, but the stories of invention and innovation are a lot bigger than PARC. PARC's research culture is organized to create breakthroughs. Although PARC is small- to medium-sized as a research organization, it has made big footprints in the world of innovation. UBIQUITY: How so?

    13. IT@Intel · How To Tell An Invention From An Innovation And Why You Should Know
    If you have a distinction between invention and innovation, you will never complain about how many innovations “fail”. There is no way for all or even most
    How to Tell an Invention from an Innovation and Why You Should Know
    posted by Eleanor Wynn on May 08, 2007 People over-use the term innovation. I know because I got “the word” from an evolutionary biologist named David Krakauer at the Santa Fe Institute Business Network meeting on Innovation in nature and in organizations in June of ’05. Since that time I tend to notice when people claim that a large percentage of “innovations” “fail”. I have to disagree. In Krakauer’s definition, an innovation is something that has already succeeded. On the other hand, invention is the production of mutations, novelties, changes. Most of these in fact do fail. But they are the raw materials of innovation. Without invention, there would be no innovation. It is absurd to think that a high percentage of inventions should succeed. Invention Invention is a process that is random, one-off and situational. Inventions can easily occur “before their time”—before receptive conditions exist; or they can come “too late”—after some possibly less productive invention has already established itself as an innovation. Inventions often need co-evolution with other inventions, in order to really create and sustain a niche. Innovation Once it has a niche in a system, it is an innovation. Once it is an innovation, by that definition, it has already succeeded. So, innovations can’t really fail, at least until some other innovation replaces them. What can fail are inventions, and they are supposed to. Mutation in nature is random, on the chance that if enough is produced, something will stick. In order to come up with some mutation that will stick, there have to be an awful lot of inventions.

    What is the difference between innovation and invention?
    In an extended post about the importance of managing innovation properly, the Innovation Zen blog argues that it is important for companies to understand the difference between innovation and invention "The first confusion to dismiss is the difference between invention and innovation . The former refers to new concepts or products that derive from individual’s ideas or from scientific research. The latter, on the other hand, represents the commercialization of the invention itself. It is important to have this difference clearly outlined because an invention may have little economic value, if at all. In order to monetize an invention it is necessary to transform it into innovation, and such transformation is possible once we find a target customer, application or market. A company may be particularly good at coming up with new ideas and inventions, but it is the ability to monetize those inventions that really matters. Organizations need to have an innovation process in place to ensure that this is possible. Tags: invention innovation [image: Thomas Alva Edison invents the lightbulb Recommend this!

    The relationship between invention and innovation often becomes a synergistic circular flow that reproduces inventive talent for new and varied purposes.
    TECHNOLOGICAL INVENTION AND INNOVATION Invention is the most important product of scientific knowledge. Without invention, science would be merely inquiry for its own sake, serving few and helping no one. Invention involves the discovery of new processes, ideas or tools. Invention is prioritary, meaning that only a new or previously unknown discovery can be considered an invention, as opposed to the development of an already existing one. Patenting an invention requires priority, meaning that no one else must have come up with the same (or similar) idea at any previous time. Patenting involves an exhaustive scrutiny of an idea’s novel qualities and an evaluation of its potential uses by experienced specialists from various fields. The evaluation of a patent application often requires years before a final determination on award can be made. Innovation , on the other hand, involves the use or development of an invention for some useful purpose. Innovations have often served as the point of departure for new inventions. Innovation is typically less risky than invention, since it usually deals with known parameters, qualities or quantities.

He has channeled his passion for useful, convenient machines into a new company that makes global positioning satellite (GPS) locators for everyday purposes. He imagines tagging a child or dog with a GPS device, so you can “find out if it gets to where it shouldn’t.” Another goal for his portable GPS: as an aide to emergency first responders, who often must find people trapped in buildings. Kari Stefannson has archived the genealogy of Icelanders going back 1100 years, in order to track down common inherited diseases and potentially cure them. There are “genes that predispose and genes that protect,” and Stefannson hopes to manipulate the function of disease genes so as to prevent the onset of such illnesses as myocardial infarction.

    HISTORY REPEATING Techdirt has an interesting post on how invention and innovation relate to our patent system: "For many years, we've tried to argue how important it is to understand the difference between innovation and invention . While it may seem like a minor point of semantics, it actually plays quite heavily into the debate over the patent system. Invention is the process of coming up with something new. Innovation is taking that something new and successfully bringing it to market in a way people want..." "If you look at the true history of major breakthroughs, you'll quickly learn that invention is fairly meaningless and the important point is the innovation. In fact, if you look at all the "great inventors" championed by American history, you'll quickly realize that most weren't great inventors at all, but rather innovators , who later (often through questionable means) took credit as the inventors they never were..."
