As a company, Google clearly relies on innovation to keep our business alive and growing. Translating that desire into a continual innovation practice is central to the outlook and world-view that Google has as a corporate culture. Innovation isn’t just for the futurists, but a part of what everyone in the company is expected to do on a day-to-day basis. Innovation isn’t something that the company can just leave to a few bright minds, but is deeply embedded in the culture of the company. There are a few pragmatic behaviors that help Google be innovative.
