Innovate to succeed

Innovation has long been recognised as a source of success, with research showing businesses that innovate regularly generate $4 million more in revenue than those that don't (Department of Industry). Innovation is essential at all levels - from idea makers to leaders who foster a culture of agility - for organisations to rise to the challenges of today and tomorrow.
