At such a peculiar historical time as the one we are currently living in, companies strongly ask for “innovation”: innovation of product/service, innovation of processes, innovation of the business as a whole. Such need might arise from far-sightedness, curiosity or from concern, always and in any case, from a discomfort of inadequacy of what already exists.
