CATS & YOUR POWER OF INNOVATION, VISUALLY SPEAKING
I told Dilip Mukerjea just a few days ago about the new book by Dr Stephen Lundin, entitled 'CATS: The Nine Lives of Innovation'. Dr Lundin is co-author of the bestselling Fish! series of business titles.
Last night, with the aid of his repertoire of Adobe softwares, Dilip has created a wonderful map of the key ideas from the book as shown above.
Personally, I have yet to read the book, but I have read several articles on the net [Readers can go to this link to read &/or download one of them] about the topic.
Nonetheless, in a nut shell, the author delineates four obstacles that limit creativity in all kinds of environments:
- negative feedback;
- fear; &
- failure of leadership;
He then describes nine techniques for overcoming those obstacles, which include organizing, understanding creativity & the power of provocation.
