The innovator’s method is a successful way to come up with entrepreneurial ideas and create a worthwhile product. The innovator’s method is meant to change the way of thinking about and looking at a product. The method had four steps to help in the creative process. The four steps are insight, problem, solution, and business model. After applying each step of the model, people will have a better idea if their product will be profitable or not.
