Connors enzyme, Edison-Invention of Bulb.Successful Innovation based on process need
requires five criteria:1-A self contained process.2-Oneweak or missing link.3-A clear definition
of the objective.4-Specification of solution can be defined.5-Realisation that there ought to be better
way i.e. high receptivity.Important caveats: - 1.The need must be understood. 2.May not have

Source 1: The Unexpected: A success, failure or event that is unplanned for is a clue that the world is changing and that an
opportunity is available. These tend to pop up around what everybody knows about a particular product, industry or service. Its not
necessary to completely understand why the world is changing, just that it is and how it can be exploited. Source 2: Incongruity:
The gap between what ought to be and what actually is is an invitation to innovate. Such opportunities are usually qualitative
rather than quantitative, so they dont show up in the numbers. Incongruities are usually visible to people within an industry, but
they have learned to live with them and so ignore them. Source 3: The process need. This is the opportunity that perfects a
process which already exists, replaces a link which is weak or redesigns an old process around newly available knowledge.
Occasionally it makes a process possible via a missing link.Source 4: Changing industry and market structures. The status quo
within an industry seems permanent but is actually quite brittle. These opportunities are valuable because they are visible to people
outside of a particular industry and because they force everyone within the industry to redefine their business or perish.Source 5:
Demographic change. The magic here is pairing the knowledge of demographic with an understanding of what they mean. This
requires getting out and talking to the people that are a part of the market being affected by demographic change.Source 6:
Changes in perception. Whether or not one sees the glass as half full or half empty is extremely important in determining what one
wants.Source 7: Knowledge based innovation. This is the superstar of innovation (what most of us picture when we think of the
word) and in Druckers view the riskiest. In essence it is creating new knowledge by applying two separate forms of knowledge.
