There are some really great points brought up here. Most companies don’t have the resources to institute expensive technologies and procedures in order to increase innovation. Which means it must come from somewhere else, and that’s where the actual employees fall in. There are certain methods employees can take then initiative to implement (such as a UX combo: http://spectechular.walkme.com/whats-ux-combo/) in order to increase innovation and improve success rates.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
