The definition of innovation for measurement purposes is anchored on ‘’new improved products/processes’’ introduced on the market or put to use, but in the Kenyan context, the emphasis is largely on interventions, with disruptive positive effects on the economy, i.e., jobs, markets, and poverty reduction. Developing a robust and functional innovation outlook requires an understanding of what innovation entails (both front-end and back-end) and why innovation is a key factor in supporting the economic development of countries (Hall et al.
2020). Despite the claims of innovation at all socio-economic levels from national, sectoral, institutional, and individual levels, there is no universal definition of innovation because it is relatively contextual and dependent on interpretation by different actors; academia, manufacturing, service providers, community-oriented organizations, and artists, among others. The varied definition of innovation and the need to have share understanding what innovation entails for Kenya, inspired this outlook. The first steps of the outlook are intended to contextualize innovation and the associated indicators to encourage a deeper understanding
and mechanisms for effective utilization among different actors, decision-makers, and investors, to name a few examples.
