Technological evolution is constant and increasing. It shapes consumers taste and prompts them to demand ever-higher performance on ever-changing dimensions. Such change requires that organizations innovate unrelentingly. Innovation requires great resources and entrepreneurial attributes. However, the internal culture of an organization is the primary driver for innovation.
The Incumbent organizations that dominate their market often fail to maintain that domination for a long, despite all the advantages they enjoy of market leadership. For example, Sony created the market for Mobile music with the introduction of Walkman, yet Apple’s Mobile iPod replaced it. Likewise, Kodak dominated the market for film photography but declined and ultimately went bankrupt as digital photography took off. Likewise, in Blackberry vs Apple Mobile Set, Barnes & Noble was replaced by Amazon. Likewise, Internet Search Engine Market leadership passed from Wandex to AltaVista to Overture to Yahoo to Google now.
Technological advancement and increased productivity mean major changes for careers today as well. The world economy could more than double in size by 2050 due to continued technology-driven product improvements. According to the World Economic Forum report – 2018, nearly 133 million new jobs may be created by 2022, while 75 million jobs are displaced by A.I., automation and robotics.
As already mentioned, for organizations, the ability to get ahead of the competition is one of the most significant reasons to innovate. Successful, innovative businesses are able to keep their operations, services and products relevant to their customers’ needs and changing market conditions.
In fact, according to Deloitte, only 12% of the Fortune 500 companies from 1955 are still in business, and half of the S&P 500 companies will be replaced in the next ten years, which is why it’s important to be able to quickly respond to external challenges.
In such a fast-changing scenario, it is very important that innovativeness and entrepreneurial attributes are seeded in the young generation to make them understand its importance and need for their success and the success of a nation. The ‘National Innovation and Start-up Policy (NISP) for students and faculty in Higher Educational Institutions will play a crucial role in India to promote Innovations and Entrepreneurship among faculty members and students. This will surely help everyone to have a good understanding of its underlying thought process, its implementation aspects and how the provisions of this policy can help the individuals or group of individuals to come forward with their ideas, discuss, convince, get supported in terms of mentoring, finances and others. This will help create a culture of Innovations and entrepreneurship among the faculty and students who would be helping in building the nation and achieving the goal of “Atmanirbhar Bharat”, on which all of us will take pride.
