Innovation Does a Project Good!

Categories: community news, innovation


When some people think of the word "innovation", they might associate it with the word "invention." In fact, these two words are not the same. Innovation often acts as the spark that ignites change within an organization or business to foster continued relevancy within the marketplace. And these changes come about through the help of projects and programs. 

As you may have noticed, this month's community theme is innovation! Braden Kelley shows us how making innovation happen has a lot to do with the roles we play versus individual personalities in his article "Innovation: A Team Sport."

On 21 July, Bruce Harpham will deliver a webinar to the community that shows us how some of the greatest innovations in the history of technology came about during the webinar titled "Lessons from the History of Innovation." If you haven't already registered, make sure you do! 

And you can always find templates and other resources to help you by visiting the Innovation practice area right here on!

Join in the conversation! Please share with us in the comments below some ways innovation has helped you drive a project forward. We'd love to hear from you!
