Sometimes the best ideas come from outside your industry.
Innovation is incredible. At times, it’s totally unbelievable as it doesn’t have a prescribed formula.
What if I told you, looking beyond your own industry can unexpectedly solve the biggest problems in a jiffy?
I know it can be a little difficult to agree in the beginning. However, it is interesting to know how industries often get ideas from other industries, sometimes from completely unrelated ones.
A very famous Harvard case study is a perfect example. It explains how 3M, a highly innovative company, got their breakthrough from theatrical makeup specialists, amid figuring out a bandage material to prevent infections associated with surgery. They turned the innovation into a multi-billion-dollar business.
