Title

Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Management

Abstract

The term innovation is one of the most misused and poorly defined terms when discussing economic growth and development. Innovation is a buzzword used by politicians hoping that by just saying "innovation" we will somehow magically break free from the mire of the current global economic downturn. There is no mystery to innovation, it is not alchemy. At the surface, it is rather simple: "people implementing ideas to create value" [1]. It is easy to understand yet vastly more challenging to do well. This paper focuses on the practical application of the innovation world and deals with topics such as; why it is difficult to be an entrepreneur, the basics of innovation, and a simple model for innovation.
