As the economy makes its recovery, what trait will characterize the successful organization? Innovation.
Info pros are always eager to introduce new ways of thinking into their organizations, but finding time to flex your innovative muscle may not have been a priority in the recent economic climate. Yet now it may be more important than ever.

Noble suggests organizations establish an innovation time where failure is welcome and a team simply gets together to think of ideas, proposals and solutions without rules.
