creating more innovative environments …

John Wilson write a bit about his book ‘SPARK‘ in two posts on tools for creating a more innovative environment – part 1 and part 2.

Some notes:
part 1:

  • Create SWAT Teams
  • Think about team chemistry (put people who will work well together)
  • create Organic Teams – teams that make sense for the situation
  • Balance structure and chaos

part 2:

  • focus on open communication
  • support varied innovation
  • identify generalists : they are the strongest persons in the innovation process. They will help in bringing new perspectives.

  1. Hey Pooja,

    For creativity there is constant ocsillation different contrasting personalities.
    structure and choas are just one of them.

    How – well they trick is to answer it yourself so that you are comfortable with it. i think it will be different for different people.
    Structure needs discipline and commitment
    chaos – ability and wilingness to let go free!

    what do ya say?
