The primary difference between creativity and innovation is that the former refers to conceiving a new idea while the latter involves converting that idea into a marketable commodity.
Creativity and innovation are an attempt to gain a competitive advantage. Organizations are now focusing on enhancing their employees’ creativity and not merely developing their technical competencies and skills.
