Romina J-Proctor's curator insight, March 5, 2013 8:26 PM

"Nimble Thinking" is a subset of creativity - an interesting concept. A well-researched quality of creative personalities is their ability to stick with difficult problems (sometimes to the death). Hopefully "nimble" doesn't mean "flighty" as Big-C creative thinkers generally focussed their thinking on a specific problem for lengthy periods. They did bring the ideas from any disciplines and others to their problem so in this respect they were "nimble". Interesting video. How can teachers facilitate creative thinking in the classroom if ideas are all scattered in each person's brain? How can we help children work through the creative thinking process to come out with a worthwhile product if there's really no process?

“Today knowledge is ubiquitous, constantly changing, growing exponentially… Today knowledge is free. It’s like air, it’s like water. It’s become a commodity… There’s no competitive advantage today in knowing more than the person next to you. The world doesn’t care what you know. What the world cares about is what you can do with what you know.”


There's a threshhold of knowledge under which innovation probably won't occur but innovation / creativity is now more important than knowledge as it's those individuals who can take knowledge to new heights who will prosper this century.

The Three Threats to Creativity Harvard Business Review

The Three Threats to Creativity  Harvard Business Review | Creatividad | Scoop.it

" My research has shown that people are most creative when they are on a mission, intrinsically motivated by a love for what they are doing. Bauer and his colleagues found immense interest, enjoyment, satisfaction, and challenge in "dreaming, proving and making things that had never been done before." Indulging their passion was so exciting, and so much fun, that they worked their tails off. These days, people are more likely to find work frustrating than fun.

How Great Entrepreneurs Think

How Great Entrepreneurs Think | Creatividad | Scoop.it

Think inside the (restless, curious, eager) minds of highly accomplished company builders.
What distinguishes great entrepreneurs? Discussions of entrepreneurial psychology typically focus on creativity, tolerance for risk, and the desire for achievement—enviable traits that, unfortunately, are not very teachable. So Saras Sarasvathy, a professor at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business, set out to determine how expert entrepreneurs think, with the goal of transferring that knowledge to aspiring founders. While still a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon, Sarasvathy—with the guidance of her thesis supervisor, the Nobel laureate Herbert Simon—embarked on an audacious project: to eavesdrop on the thinking of the country's most successful entrepreneurs as they grappled with business problems. She required that her subjects have at least 15 years of entrepreneurial experience, have started multiple companies—both successes and failures—and have taken at least one company public.

About weeks ago I had the pleasure to give a guest lecture to the ten talented miami ad school students participating in Steffen Stäuber‘s „Create Meaning“ project.

As a Planner/Strategist I thought first to talk about what a strategy is and how to write a strategy-brief. But then I decided to approach my lecture from another perspective.

Nine Ways To Light Your Creativity ON FIRE

Nine Ways To Light Your Creativity ON FIRE | Creatividad | Scoop.it

I felt so ashamed. I had just lost my apartment in the city. I had no jobs. No prospects for jobs. No money. A few years earlier I had millions and then I had nothing. So I sold my apartment, scraped together some cash, and moved 70 miles north of the city. It was in the middle of a blizzard. I was scared of my neighbors. I couldn’t get out of bed I was so depressed. I gained twenty pounds because I never moved my body. There was blizzard after blizzard. I didn’t go into the city at all, not even to attend the closing of my hated apartment, which took me almost two years to sell (at almost 50% of the price I originally listed at). I had no phone. Didn’t need one.  I didn’t feel like I would have any skills for a job and it was a recession anyway. I was really scared because my dad’s career had basically ended in a similar way and then fizzled out from depression. The same thing was going to happen to me, I was sure of it.

Natalie Portman: "I definitely thrive on discipline and extreme situations and a quest for perfection." -- But it was more than a driving professionalism that drove Portman to the Black Swan script, she says. "Something that was interesting to me was the need to become a woman, to become an adult, in order to be an artist."

Where Do Good Ideas Come From? | Open Culture

Where Do Good Ideas Come From? | Open Culture | Creatividad | Scoop.it

Where do good ideas come from? Places that put us together. Places that allow good hunches to collide with other good hunches, sometimes creating big breakthroughs and innovations. During the Enlightenment, this all happened in Parisian salons and coffee houses. Nowadays, it’s happening on the web, in places that defy your ordinary definition of “place.” In four animated minutes, Steven Johnson outlines the argument that he makes more fully in his soon-to-be-published book, Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation. The video is the latest from the RSAnimate series.

Creative Cultures: MailChimp Grants Employees "Permission To Be Creative"

Creative Cultures: MailChimp Grants Employees "Permission To Be Creative" | Creatividad | Scoop.it

1. Avoid rules. Avoid order. Don't just embrace chaos, but create a little bit of it. Constant change, from the top-down, keeps people nimble and flexible (and shows that you want constant change). 2. Give yourself and your team permission to be creative. Permission to try something new, permission to fail, permission to embarrass yourself, permission to have crazy ideas. 3. Hire weird people. Not just the tattoo'd and pierced-in-strange-places kind, but people from outside your industry who would approach problems in different ways than you and your normal competitors. 4. Meetings are a necessary evil, but you can avoid the conference room and meet people in the halls, the water cooler, or their desks. Make meetings less about delegation and task management and more about cross-pollination of ideas (especially the weird ideas). This is a lot harder than centralized, top-down meetings. But this is your job -- deal with it. 5. Structure your company to be flexible. Creativity is often spontaneous, so the whole company needs to be able to pivot quickly and execute on them (see #1).
