Unless you’re constantly changing, evolving and innovating the products and services that you offer, you’ll become irrelevant very quickly. 

Scotland has a great reputation for creative business solutions and thinking outside of the box. Our international reputation in engineering, for example, thrives on our commitment to research and find novel solutions to stay ahead.

Small change, big difference

In this video, Scotland's business thought leaders discuss how they've incorporated innovation into their ventures.

Innovation is integral to business performance. In rapidly-changing industries such as healthcare, there’s a necessity to stay ahead of the competitors. According to Ian Walker of Johnson and Johnson, “to grow as a commercial organisation, we’ve absolutely got to embrace the new R & D, the new inventions and absolutely commercialise them”.

Innovation is key to business. I think if you stand still, you will perish. Scots have a great reputation of being great innovators. Thinking outside of the box and being innovative really gave us a reputation in the world; especially in engineering... it’s in our DNA.
