    Orchestrating Creative Teams

    October 7, 2015 | By: | In: Creative Leadership

    “Come up with something new! And make it good.” Have you ever said that? More and more leaders nowadays make this demand. They need something new and creative, and they need it to be good.

    Evaluation and Innovation

    September 30, 2015 | By: | In: Creative Leadership

    The words evaluation and innovation are not often put together in one sentence. Most companies believe that measurement has a negative effect on creativity and innovation —it is seen as a control tool that harms, rather than supports, reflection and learning.

In fact, many organizations end up ignoring the issue all together.

    At the beginning of the twentieth century, research and development was a highly guarded and elite practice.

    Reinventing Capitalism – Making Money Doing Good

    September 23, 2015 | By: | In: Creative Leadership, Organization & Culture

    How do you make money doing good? The societal assumption is that making a profit and doing good sit on the opposing ends of the spectrum, and it is a theory that pervades our culture. In capitalism, one must choose between profit and doing good, but cannot have both. We choose to challenge this way of thinking and argue that creative leadership must be able to find a way to combine the two.
