When discussing projects with clients I have found that innovation often takes place with people that aren’t necessarily in their field of discipline.  As a custom fabricator we have meet some very interesting people over the years that have had some great ideas. Often times these ideas aren’t in a field of our clients expertise or even our own yet some great innovations have come from such meetings.  Creativity seems to flow naturally as we collaborate ideas and look for solutions to the clients needs.  Often times the collaboration leads to more ideas and have launched of some really great projects and products.  These clients have very little knowledge in some cases, yet have had revolutionary ideas executed with great success.  Likewise, some of our best procedures and our own innovation as a fabrication facility have come from looking at an old problem with a new perspective.

I have begun to think about how our own knowledge how can stifle innovation within our own company.  Our knowledge gives us the ability to be decisive and ultimately it is our primary source to make good decisions. Yet, when does knowledge become a liability to a company, customer, or a project.  How do we recognize if we have reached a point that our own expertise has stifled innovation and creativity? Can we help our staff and clients realize when they have stifled their learning with knowledge (in other words how do we avoid being a know it all)?

Company leadership must create an environment in which creativity can be explored in the confines of knowledge.  Attempting something that has a probability of success after discussion and risk mitigation is the only way to practice ingenuity.  When a company comes to the point where it no longer has the ability to take a calculated risk it runs the risk of  loosing it’s relevance in the market of ingenuity.  Although, knowledge is a valuable asset to any company it can become a liability when it gets in the way of learning something new or taking calculated risks with potential reward.

For the sake of our customers we always like to offer alternative solutions to their projects or problems.  Though we may loose some revenue by selling a less expensive solution we are more likely to gain future sales by offering good alternatives at reduced rates.  Likewise, our customers can always choose to stick with what they know too.  This is when knowledge that is tried and true can be relied on and the customer can rest assured in the known.  However, we should all be willing to at least entertain new solutions to old problems and encourage our colleagues to be creative and inventive in the solutions we offer.  How can precision Pipe help you discover your new solutions…
