Why specialists might be hampering innovation in digital transformation

Why specialists might be hampering innovation in digital transformation | Museums, innovation and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
The road to digital transformation is paved with innovation. Or, at least, the acceptance of an innovation mindset.

Via Brian Steffens
Kajsa Hartig's insight:
"Ideation is challenging work, and even so, is only half the battle. Identifying the end goal, quantifying the gaps in current practices and skills, and mapping the competencies that are required for modern marketing are essential steps in business transformation. Today, this process also needs to be agile and responsive to market and customer behavior changes over time. Implementation can be even harder. We have to recognize two different kinds of knowledge: first, developing a set of compelling statements to convince, mobilize and motivate a new team of skilled modern marketers and practitioners."

What Creativity Really Is - and Why Schools Need It | #ModernEDU #ModernLEARNing 

What Creativity Really Is - and Why Schools Need It | #ModernEDU #ModernLEARNing  | Museums, innovation and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
What is creativity?


Although creativity is often defined in terms of new and useful products, I believe it makes more sense to define it in terms of processes. Specifically, creativity involves cognitive processes that transform one’s understanding of, or relationship to, the world.

A society thrives when individuals are given the space to create or imitate ideas. 

There may be adaptive value to the seemingly mixed messages that teachers send about creativity. Creativity is the novelty-generating component of cultural evolution. As in any kind of evolutionary process, novelty must be balanced by preservation.

In biological evolution, the novelty-generating components are genetic mutation and recombination, and the novelty-preserving components include the survival and reproduction of “fit” individuals. In cultural evolution, the novelty-generating component is creativity, and the novelty-preserving components include imitation and other forms of social learning.

It isn’t actually necessary for everyone to be creative for the benefits of creativity to be felt by all. We can reap the rewards of the creative person’s ideas by copying them, buying from them or simply admiring them. Few of us can build a computer or write a symphony, but they are ours to use and enjoy nevertheless.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 5, 2:44 PM
Creativity in the classroom is challenging and disrupts. Good teachers do not let that stop them from engaging creative students. For example, in Science Fair projects ask students to explore what interests them and, if their hypothesis is inaccurate, ask them to describe why that happened.

Too often, we treat creativity as if it were soemthing completely novel. It is quite often something that is added to an existing idea, product, process, etc.
