Innovative products or services are those that are beyond the existing boundaries of a prospect. They cannot be bought; all what is outside the boundaries of a person can be admired but can only be bought after the person included it into its area of comfort or safety.
Innovations need to have objective and subjective added value for the buyers and, by definition, they need to have a superior functionality or provide more power to the buyers.
The adoption of innovations requires that the products or services need to provide some of these alternatives: more pleasure, more power, easier work or more functionality. Optimal innovations integrate all the aspects.
Inventions, new design or discoveries need to be confronted with this analysis before defining if they will be launched or not. If the moment hasn’t come, there is a possibility that an innovation works as a catalyst for other products. In this case it is not a business in itself but sustains other businesses.
