If you want some very interesting insight into creativity, check out the TED talks series and the chat by Sir Ken Johnson. He’s an advisor to the Getty and discourses on the importance of creativity in education.
In our conversations about creativity, we rarely talk about the academic work being done on the subject. It’s not a fallow field—and it’s not crazy or weird, as many business folk would have it. I know that Teachers College, the graduate school of education at Columbia U in NYC, devotes resources to studying how best to teach children to be creative. Should the Columbia Business School reach out to the Ed School to learn about creativity and innovation? You bet. Harvard has a great graduate education school and so does Stanford. Do their B-Schools ever talk to the Ed Schools? Probably not. Should they? You bet.
Want to stop talking about innovation and learn how to make it work for you? Bruce Nussbaum takes you deep into the latest thinking about innovation and design with daily scoops, provocative perspectives and case studies. Nussbaum is at the center of a global conversation on the growing discipline of innovation and the deepening field of design thinking.
