WHY INNOVATION IS IMPORTANT

We use Design-Based Innovation to accelerate the capacity of City Hall.

Our mission is to create impactful  new approaches to city government and drive meaningful and measurable reform to effectively deliver change to the people of Long Beach.

WHAT IS INNOVATION?

 

The act of innovating encourages us to look around and problem solve. Innovation is seeing the dots that others may not and then connecting them. This is necessary to move forward.  Innovation does not always mean creating something brand new or even developing a technology-based solution. It requires considering all individuals and their needs in an equitable way.  Sometimes, we just need to explore what has already been done and modify it for the specific user.

WHAT IS INNOVATION?

 

Innovation is seeing the dots that others do not, those beyond the status quo, and then connecting them. It is knowing that connecting those dots is necessary in order to move forward. The act of innovating encourages us to look around and problem solve. We are asked to be specific in the solution so there is a valuable outcome.

 

Innovation does not always mean creating something brand new or even technology-based. Sometimes, we just need to explore what has already been done and modify it to the specific user. The most important thing is that the innovative solution provide value to the user.
