When we speak of the members of a social community changing one of their practices, we invoke the ﬁrst sense. When we speak of the practice of innovation, we invoke the second sense. When we speak of the eight generative practices of innovators, we invoke the second and third senses, meaning that all innovators exercise them and develop their performance through practice.
