Power Quotes: Group Creativity

 

group brainstorming meetings can become productive drivers of company innovation or simply a waste of company time.


Establish rules of the game. Some popular and effective rules:

Suspend all judgmentThere’s no such thing as a bad ideaGo for quantity, not qualityEmbrace wild, audacious ideasThe origin of the idea is irrelevant


Shaking things up can have a dramatic impact on a group’s ability to collaborate freely and build upon one another’s ideas. That’s how innovative solutions are born.

Power Quotes:

 

While it should be obvious that human talent is the most important ingredient for true innovation, many organizations struggle with and cannot seem to shake a business outlook that views people as interchangeable parts or as mere job descriptions.

Many organizations, whether they know it or not, will do a lot of things to hurt innovation and drive away talented people.

The key is to keep the innovation flowing and to cultivate success for everyone by getting rid of old-fashioned barriers to collaborative relationships. New opportunities to build and hold onto entrepreneurial connections will ensure a burst of innovative spirit across the more self-aware organization.

Unlocking Creativity

(May 19, 2012) Tina Seelig gives a talk about how we look at creativity in a narrow way and how we need to look at imagination in a different light. She then...
Douglas Brown's insight:

Notes:

 

How can we help students think more creatively? How can teachers help students unlock the creativity within?

 

Start here:

Framing and reframing.

Connect and combines ideas in interesting ways.

Challenge assumptions.

 

Then, go here:

Develop, build, you knowledge base. "Your knowledge is your toolbox for innovation."

Pay attention (to the world around you).

 

Key to Success:

Mindset (attitude), motivation, drive. "If you don't have that drive and that motivation you're not going to connect and combine ideas, you're not going to reframe problems, you're not going to challenges assumptions and go beyond the first right answer."

 

Barriers:

 

Habitat

Resources

Culture ("Culture is like the background music of every city, of any community, of any organization, of every team, of every family."

 

Putting it all together:

 

Innovation is like a Mobius Strip. Nothing can be looked at in isolation. You can start anywhere to get this innovation going. 

 

"Everyone has the key to their innovation engine, it's up to them to turn it."
