AbstractInnovation is an essential element of today's industry success. Innovation can take different forms, all of which have their own challenges and rewards. Innovative business processes can result, for example, in improved client services or reduced overhead costs, while technology innovation can help in increasing product quality or in reducing production times. However, the development and implementation of innovation does not come free and, if not properly planned and validated, can result in costly mistakes. The solution is then to predict the needs in the near to medium term futures and identify the key challenges to address in order to fulfill those needs. This can be done at various levels: for a whole industry sector, for a sub-sector of a particular industry, or for a specific product or process.
