Jugaad and Innovation .. any different ?

Jugaad is a term applied to a creative or innovative idea providing a quick, alternative way of solving or fixing a problem.

Is Jugaad always the true solution or is it a stop gap arrangement ?

According to some researchers of innovation, an innovation has a commercial application for an idea which can be effective in easing the efforts or time to reach a final solution.

Jugaad on the other hand  is nothing but a stop gap fix, not a permanent one of finishing a work easily. We need to move from a Jugaadi mindset to a more permanent one, of offering a true, verifiable, superior, replicable solution to a problem considering the long term applications.

Jugaad is a short term solution, while innovation is a long term, stable, documentable, verifiable solution to a problem.
