“Add Creativity To Your Decision Process”

“Add Creativity To Your Decision Processes,” by G. David Hughes of the University of North Carolina.

Very interesting article that weaves together creativity, the failure of 20th-Century modes of thinking, the triune brain, and leadership. I like the definition: “innovation is simply creativity that adds value.”  And two quotes the author cites from other work:

  • “At the end of the twentieth century, our seventeenth-century organizations are crumbling” – from Wheatley;
  • “… stability, harmony, predictability, discipline, and consensus, which are central to most Western management practices, are all wrong.  Instead of equilibrium … we need bounded instability, which is the framework in which nature innovates” – from Stacey.

Food for thought, and action.
