There is more to innovation within a company than just creating ideas.  Many companies need to be renovated to enable innovation. Renovation includes both soft-edged (culture) and hard-edged (management systems) aspects of what makes the company run day in and day out. Changing the organization to be more innovative is a slow and deliberate process that insures you keep what is working and renovate what needs improving.
