As Canada prepares for its 150th birthday, many of our friends in the U.S. might be wondering what all the fuss is about. After all, we’re a quiet nation of mostly snow and trees, right? Think again! Canada has a long history of innovation and invention and is responsible for many of the items that have changed the history of the world. In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday we’d like to share some inventions that you may be shocked to learn were created in Canada!
"Without change, innovation doesn't exist and neither does creativity”
The media was a buzz this past August with the release of the iPhone 7 that lacked a headphone jack. People were baffled by the announcement, speculating the success of Apple’s innovation. While Apple is known for their innovative culture and dependency on new ideas, can you picture that pitch meeting? The designer proudly claims that his idea can significantly decrease the width of the phone, but it requires the removal of the headphone jack. What would your immediate response be to that eager designer?
We all talk about innovation and disruption but few of us actually do anything about it. Sometimes we say we don’t need to Innovate, we just need to hunker down and be better at what we already do. That’s okay. Sometimes. But other times we know it’s not okay and that we need to innovate to survive and thrive. The problem: few know the secrets to successfully move thoughts about innovation into action.
