If your ideas consist of little more than random, incomplete thoughts existing outside a framework for execution you might have a problem. If you don’t understand the difference between ideas and innovation it’s likely all your great ideas haven’t amounted to enough to buy a cup of coffee. Disruptive innovation is rarely as simple as raw genius that bubbles-up. Most often innovation is the culmination of several things: a sound idea, vetted through great process, refined by innovative application, and brought to market by outstanding leadership. The difference between an idea and innovation is execution – don’t be the “idea” person, be the innovator.
