The Hard Work of Invention

Isaacson, the author of definitive biographies of Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein, finds that brilliant ideas invariably have a history, and that brilliant innovators are people who know how to build on the work of others to turn ideas into reality. As he puts it, “Only in storybooks do inventions come like a thunderbolt.” The Innovators repeatedly shows that coming up with breakthrough ideas is the easy part of innovation. The hard part? Turning those ideas into advances that are practical to implement—practical not only technically, but also commercially. Doing so, Isaacson emphasizes, requires not just an idea, but an ecosystem.

The Rise Of Creativity As A Key Quality In Modern Leadership

The Rise Of Creativity As A Key Quality In Modern Leadership | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
By David Slocum To speak of a creative leader, or manager, is for some a paradox: creativity is chaotic and unrestrained while leadership is orderly and controlling, and setting the two together makes for an uneasy, potentially volatile combination. It was not always thus. A century ago, as businessmen entered the 20th [...]
Marci Segal, MS's insight:

The last two decades have seen nearly all businesses embrace innovation and creativity as central missions, at least at a high level, with leaders expected to serve as imaginative guides.

What disruptive innovation means

The theory of disruptive innovation was invented by Clayton Christensen, of Harvard Business School, in his book “The Innovator’s Dilemma”. Mr Christensen used the term to describe innovations that create new markets by discovering new categories of customers. They do this partly by harnessing new technologies but also by developing new business models and exploiting old technologies in new ways. He contrasted disruptive innovation with sustaining innovation, which simply improves existing products

The physics of creativity | mydigitalfc.com

The physics of creativity | mydigitalfc.com | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
For better or worse, says Csikszentmihalyi, our future is now closely tied to human creativity. The inference is obvious — the outcome of it all will be determined in large measure, wholly and substantially, by our own dreams, and our struggles to make them real. He argues that creativity isn’t a prerogative of supreme beings alone. The Homo sapiens, as Csikszentmihalyi argues, is riding the crest of evolution, thanks to human craft and creative hunger, aside from the emergence of great machines, and harnessing of energies, which have transformed the face of our living planet. It’s a revelation. This is not all. The psychologist also admits, cheek by jowl, that he’s not too sure whether this transformation will help the human race or cause its downfall.
