Difference Between Creativity and Innovation

Creativity vs innovation

Creativity can be considered as the process of thinking up new things and concepts while innovation is the process of converting those thoughts into tangible things. Another way of looking at it is to consider creativity as the dreaming up of new things and innovation as the process of making those dreams come true.

If something new has been brought into existence, it can be said that you have created it. But you cannot say that you have innovated it. It is only when you have made improvements to something which already exists, that you can be said to have made an innovation.

Creativity is said to be the capability of conceiving something unusual or original. Innovation, on the other hand, is said to be the implementation of some new thing. In other words, creativity is generating ideas and innovation is bringing these ideas to life. Creativity is related to experience whereas innovation is related to observation.  

Creativity is a word that has been derived from the Latin word Creo meaning ‘to create’. The word create first appeared in the English language during the 14th century, especially in Chaucer. But the modern usage of creativity emerged only after Enlightenment.

Innovation is a word that has been derived from Latin Innovationem, which is the noun for action of the term innovare. Innovare is derived from the Latin innovatus, which means change or renew.
