Innovation skills are practically the types of skills that allow individuals to become innovative in what they do. These are usually a combination of cognitive skills (e.g. the ability to think creatively and critically), behavioural skills (e.g. the ability to solve problems, to manage risk), functional[disambiguation needed] skills (e.g. basic skills such as writing, reading and numeracy) and technical skills (e.g. research techniques, project management, or IT engineering).
