PhD Supervision – Sharing, Interaction and Guidance

It’s no secret that getting a PhD is a stressful process. One of the factors that can help or hinder this period of study is the relationship between supervisor and student. Research shows that effective supervision can significantly influence the quality of the PhD and its success or failure. I strongly believe that supervisor should always sharing new thinking of research, innovative and creative. Supervisor also should be able to create more research interaction between scholars, locally and internationally and guidance in achieving high impact research as well as publish journal publication, conferences research paper and seminar. Make our PhD Candidate always feel happy and enjoy doing their PhD Research.             Be – “Good to Great” – James Collins

Introduction

The word “innovation” is used widely and inconsistently in media and business literature. Looking to the Latin roots of the word, “in-nova-tion” literally means “in a new way.” Innovation can be defined as the successful conversion of new concepts and knowledge into new products, services, or processes that deliver new customer value in the marketplace.

Innovation by definition adds value, and it is probable that a successful innovative solution will be the one that improves the process and/or its output. But innovation and improvement are often referred to in tandem, as in “our innovation and improvement program” or “the continuous improvement and innovation team.” Not all improvements are innovations, most innovations are improvements, and there are some innovations that are not improvements.
