Innovation Versus a Good Idea
What is innovation? How is it different from simply having a good idea? Analyze the role of innovation with regard to change and reflect on how leadership characteristics and communication strategies influence the success of the adoption of the innovation.

Identify one example to predict what influence conformity and internal and external factors have on innovation. Reflect on which is better, internal or external forces, for initiating the change. Why? Predict what influence internal forces versus external forces have on the speed at which the change is adopted.
