Innovation. It’s one of those buzzy business words you hear in commercials for cars or even vacuum cleaners or perhaps read in full-page ads printed in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. But what does it really mean to innovate in 2015?

It’s not enough anymore for a company or its CEO to say that innovation is a priority. In today’s environment, they must be prepared to back that up with action both internally and externally.
