The 9 keys to an Innovative Culture

Innovation is something fresh that creates value

Deliberate interactions and defined constraints stimulate creation. Inventing value can become a process, not just a fluke.

Innovation should not mean working alone

Collaboration provides associations, speed, connections, and energy necessary for implementation. Without implementation, there is no innovation.

Problems are best solved when framed and when defined

The more specific the problem, the more creative the solution can be. When the objective is clearly defined and everything else is free game, the possibilities are endless.

Creativity flows freely when unfettered by groupthink

Independent ideation followed by collaborative discussion maximize potential creativity without loss of focus.

Every problem calls for a unique solution

Intensive ideation and collaboration are necessary to ensure all options are reviewed and the best solution is found.
