Technology

What are some real-world examples of how organizations that embrace innovation of all types, such as technologies and processes, are more likely to thrive than those that do not embrace innovation?

This was the only way to have a truly successful business in such a bold and competitive new world. The biggest embrace of innovation seen in the 21st Century was the use of the Internet. Organizations leaped at the opportunity to innovate their products, purchasing approach, and philosophy to conducting business.
