You have a choice to set up a way for yourself or anyone else to start innovating right away. You just need something to empower exploration, and it ought to consist of things that already exist. If you accept that the trial and error reveals the innovations needed, and that you can at least simulate their impact using other parts, there is no point in trying to plan a “great innovation” or culling innovation ideas from the get-go. You can choose to focus on the problem and simply get started. So, create some tools of the trade and be a professional innovator. You can easily build an innovation prototyping kit, starting from anything—a product idea, a hunch about a problem, a development kit, a research paper, or a patent. Such a kit packages a hunch about a problem and helps you or others get started.
