The Next Industrial Revolution is Being Fuelled by Digital Creativity
The Internet of Things is the next industrial revolution, the next quantum leap in human achievement. And, it’s just getting started.
The application of machine learning to artificial intelligence will amplify human potential and creativity. It’s destined to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.
In a recently published article entitled, “Creativity is an Essential Part of Transformation,” author and expert, Jan Koster, suggests that creativity is an important factor in your business’s transformation process:
“Organizations that are transforming are changing into something new, something that did not exist before. When these organizations transform into something that not only does not exist within their own company but that doesn’t exist yet within other companies, that is true innovation,” he writes, adding, “As an organization, you want to determine what you want to transform into. But how do you outline a view of something that isn’t there yet? […]This requires entrepreneurship, but also fresh new ideas. You need creativity to create innovative ideas that enable your organization to stay relevant.”
Can Creativity Be Learned?
Koster suggests that you can train creativity, just as you can train emotional intelligence.
If you want to become more creative, you need to widen your filter. And Koster outlines this below:
Think as a traveler. Don’t sit behind your desk waiting for the magic to happen. Expose yourself to new experiences and ideas. Innovation often happens at the edges of the organization, where the organization is in contact with other parties in the ecosystem.
Empathy for the end user: See things from end-user’s point of view. You will come up with better ideas if you look at the world from their perspective and understand what they want. Empathy is the basis for design thinking!
Observe: Observe other people and you will discover new opportunities hidden in plain sight.
Keep asking questions, and start with why? This will enable you to expose the question behind the question. A healthy dose of curiosity will come in handy!
Relaxedattention take a step back and give your brain the time and space to create connections between seemingly unrelated ideas.
