In a previous post, we talked about Recession-Proof: Silver Linings, the article discussed how recessions are almost an incubator for Innovation. Innovation takes a business objective and accomplishes that objective in a new way that the industry hasn't see or embraced.

One point, in the article, was that to be innovative didn't require inventing new technologies.
