Innovation in a Down Economy The concept of using innovation in business has gained popularity in this difficult economy. Companies are working to "gain a competitive edge" by being more creative and innovative about the products and services they provide. We'll talk with local innovation experts about how companies of all sizes- nationally and here in the Charlotte region- are using innovation, and how embracing a more creative and inventive way of doing business may help them survive and thrive in the down economy. Can businesses be "taught" to think creatively? We'll find out.
