Innovation and Creativity Does Not Live in a Vacuum
I had an awesome time talking with Josepf Haslam the other day about this. What a great mind and conversationalist. Thanks Josepf!
Got innovation and creativity in your business? Josepf Haslam of Dragonsearch Marketing and Don F Perkins of Localedge Media talk about some recent examples of spurring innovation by increasing connections. Consider ways you can use Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin to spark creativity. Got a great idea? Grow it on line. Let others add to it. Some great ideas by Stephen B. Johnson’s book: “Where good ideas come from” are looked at, along with some real world examples of businesses recognizing the value of these powerful principles:
Chance favors the connected mind.
Increasing social connections spurs innovation and creativity in your business.
Good ideas often come from the collision of smaller hunches.
Pay it forward and it will come back to you.
Good ideas grow into great ideas when shared
Josepf and Don share examples of companies like Nike, IBM, AT&T and other high tech companies that are growing great ideas through social sharing, creating online community and crowd sourcing things like chip set troubleshooting.
Could your company be the next to use open source logic, twitter, facebook, linkedin, google+ or blogging to gain an advantage through increased innovation and creativity? Hear what others are doing to do just that.
