“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.
