Jenis-jenis inovasi

Pada catatan yang lepas, saya ada bicarakan mengenai jenis-jenis inovasi, iaitu inovasi teknologi dan inovasi kemanusiaan. Di sini, saya catatkan semula huraian inovasi daripada tesis saya:

Innovation can be classified into two major types, i.e. technological innovation and procedural innovation. Technological innovation means that innovators create technology through innovation process, for example new type of waste bin. Through the technological innovation, innovators can help to manage waste by innovating and designing 'durable product which are refillable, reusable and recyclable' (Mohamed Zairi, 1996). Meanwhile procedural innovation is where innovators create new management using innovation, for example new procedure of how to treat waste paper.
