Workshop abstract

Siemens, Toyota, IKEA, Google, Apple, TATA, P&G and Skype are some of the most successful companies in the world; nevertheless they are among the top innovative companies.  Those companies managed to reach to this stage not only through investment but also through stimulating systematically creativity and innovation in their organizations.

Thinking out of the box and creativity cannot be implemented by demanding employees to do so, because of the nature of human thinking which can be creative only under suitable environment and the right conditions.

This workshop will discuss how creativity of employees can be stimulated through policies, methods and processes.

Lessons from the Puzzle of Innovation

In the last few weeks I was under stress and wanted to relax and do something I have not done for many years. I thought of many things and looked around the home without finding anything interesting that might be relaxing.

While I was looking at my library of books, I noticed on the top shelf an old box that I bought for more than 7 years but never opened. It is a Jigsaw Puzzle, in box, with a picture on the top of a country side view with trees and houses. I opened the box and just started putting the pieces together and piece by piece solving it. It was surprisingly fun and relaxing. Puzzles have grown into a daily activity for me.

So what this has to do with innovation?
