It essentially entails innovative process, theories involved and the sourcing of funds (Collins, 2016). Innovation Theories Prior to the implementation of any project, it has to go through different important phases. However, for parking valet business, the foundation centers on design thinking model which is a human-centered theory to innovation (Collins, 2016). It aligns with objectives of the proposed business activity that captures the designer’s toolkit as a way of meeting our clients’ needs.
