There’s 4 types of innovation, and they all begin with P!
- Product innovation
- Process innovation
- Position innovation
- Paradigm innovation
So I’ve been asked to think of an example of a paradigm innovation. This is a little tricky believe it or not, because most innovations are usually a product, process or a position innovation.
A paradigm innovation in simple terms is something completely new, the example I was given was the invention of car. A lot of people argue that this is a process or a product innovation from horses and carriages but for now lets listen to the lecturer.
I may not be right, but I think Glasses (Eyewear) was a paradigm innovation. This is because I don’t recall any product or process improving our eyesight as such.
And now Google Glass which I believe is product innovation because glasses already existed and so several other features which makes the Glass, the Glass. But others are claiming it to be a paradigm innovation (in technology) as this is completely unique to the world and only something we have seen in movies.
