Innovation is Absolutely Necessary

We hear a lot about innovation these days, and there are more than enough examples (many recent) that if you are not innovating you are usually on the way to being irrelevant.  There are many ways to innovate and different methodologies, but the main key that they all encompass is that you have to "get away" to create and invigorate ideas.  So whether you are doing a hackathon, having a solution day, or gathering for a pie in the sky session make sure that you are in a place where you focus on the possibilities.
