Can innovation be learned? Absolutely, says Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, he reveals three questions budding innovators should answer in order to make your product a winner:
- Have you tried it? If it doesn’t work for you, then you can’t expect it to shine for others.
- How can you make it better? Examine negative feedback from colleagues, customers and trusted mentors to improve as best you can.
- Are you spending too much time in conference rooms? Theory is great, but investigating the actual product and its production process can yield better insights.
