Innovation and Creativity The Definitive Guide
Hello and a warm welcome to Innovation Creativity. My name is Martin and my goal is for this site to be a definitive guide to all things related to innovation, invention, ideas and creativity.
I first gained an interest in innovation and the input to innovation which is creativity in 2003 while completing my Masters degree in business administration at Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK. Since that point I have continued to research and further my learning in the innovation and creativity field.
My intention is to use this site as a means to share my knowledge and understanding with others who have similar interests in innovation and creativity.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
There often tends to be confusion between innovation and creativity. Innovation is basically the ability to make new things actually happen and creativity is the ability to have original ideas / see a different way of doing something.
Creativity is the thinking, innovation is the implementation.
Being innovative in your day-to-day working life is a sure way to excel and promote your career on a fast track forwards.
Continuing with the status quo may feel like a safe option, but in the long run it will turn out to be more risky than getting out there and trying new things or creating new products, approaches, processes or services.
If you don’t make the changes then you can be sure that someone else will and that someone else can soon take the lead via their innovative approach.
Another good reason for innovation creativity is that people are often in their element when being creative or implementing creative ideas. Time flies by, you will feel like there are not enough hours in the day, you will have vast amounts of energy and you will be jumping out of bed in the morning in order to get to work on your innovative project.
My hope is that this site may assist you in being more creative and help you in gaining more understanding of the innovation process.
