An incremental improvement is a small change made to an existing product that serves to keep the product fresh in the eyes of customers. Normally incremental innovations modify existing technologies and may focus on cost reduction or feature improvement.
Incremental improvement projects are often initiated through functional work groups and are in stark contrast to radical innovations.
