Statisticians as innovation leaders

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] Innovation leading to business growth is increasingly important in many industries. We discuss the unique roles that statistics and statisticians can play in facilitating and leading innovation efforts. Many of the statistical tools to improve quality can also be used to generate more business value through innovation. We also believe that many applied statisticians are especially well positioned to drive and even lead innovation efforts. For statisticians to be successful in leading innovation, they will need to strengthen their skills beyond what they have traditionally needed in the past, but we believe this will be worth the effort.
