Topic: Management


Sustainable business & innovations are need of future generations. This paper aims at filling a gap, the gap between the high-level vision of sustainability and innovator’s and designer’s everyday work in creating new technical artefacts, services, and businesses. The concepts of sustainability are reviewed in the light of established product development processes, as well as with regard to a number of current proposals for integrating sustainability in innovation processes. The paper describes a framework for the front end of innovation. This framework is capable of reconciling the different notions of sustainability; simplified: “profit, people, and planet”. A case study of a sustainable innovation is presented.

Key Words : Sustainability, Innovations, New sustainable innovations & approach, Design changes.

    Hi fellow Researcher Yogesh D. Sonawane; l wish to confirm that your topic is researcher and l do agree with you that; Sustainability is the concept that mankind should grow with, therefore, sustainable and quality is something that should not be separated from people’s daily living. However, l have few comments:
    1. why not stating the type of Research methodology; approach used; tools; target group, sampling strategy, finding revealed in your research paper in the abstract? I thought this was important.
    2. What approach did you use in this research paper, is this quantitative, qualitative, library based approach? You have just mentioned that it is the case study kind of research; why? Please justify your research design and the statement of the problem.
    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The paper it self is mentioned the approach of Design concept improvement. Design have both approach of Quantitative & Qualitative approach with continuous modification.
    The paper is targeting the Innovations in design with sustainability approach. So its applicable to all designs & innovations. No target group approach is part of paper its target is process of innovation & design through sustainability.
    A case study is mentioned to understand the how we can take it forward sustainability in design.
    Hope i have clarified the points.

    Point taken Yogesh .D. Sonwane
    Yes dear l agree with you, sustainability is seen more as the “quality factor”, which should be integrated into the innovation design so that the private /public sector itself leads to inclusive and prolonged growth, which is through the three dimensions- social, economic and environmental.

    Sustainability is the concept that mankind should grow with, therefore, sustainable and quality is something that should not be separated from people’s daily living.
    Good Luck!

    The article has shown that the author included adequate background information by citing several prior research works of other scholars. The data is well presented, analyzed with sufficient supporting arguments in comparison to similar cases of different scholars. Finally, the impressive analysis of the data has addressed all the hypotheses with proposed solution in regards to sustainable innovations.

    Good article.
