Innovations equals Breakthrough Technology, whereas the reality is that a large number of successful innovations have come from a new application of an older technology. 3. Breakthrough Innovation is Strategic Innovation and therefore has to be Top Down, whereas the reality is that operational innovation can also create breakthroughs. Breakthrough Innovation needs to be Top down & Bottom up and across all functions. 4.
