Innovation vs Improvisation

The gap between innovation from improvisation is market acceptance, discipline in execution, and continuous improvement.

The Difference Between Innovation and Improvisation

Improvisation is a quick-fix solution to a problem, when time or resources, or both, are scarce. The solution leaves much to be desired and I tend to agree with Mr. Jose Luis Roces comments. I would also like to add that legal issues too may sometimes be involved.
In India the 'Jugaad' culture is all about solving the problem anyhow and moving on.

INNOVATION versus IMPROVISATION

@Jose Luis Roces: I disagree with your answer.
Improvisation and innovation are not playing in the same category and in a way are not to be opposed.

Innovation is not answer to an event but a process and an attitude aiming at identifying opportunities and providing the framework to transform that idea into a product, solution, service.
