Revisiting Creativity, Inc.

By |2019-10-31T03:15:28+00:00August 20th, 2016|Creativity|

A few years ago, I posted a reflection on Ed Catmull's book, Creativity, Inc. (with Amy Wallace). I've recently been working on a project to design workshops on creativity, so I decided to revisit the book and the post. My copy of the book is full of highlighted sections and scribbled margin notes, and it [...]

False Science

An article in January's Harvard Business Review has caught my attention because it adds validity and nuance to the broader approach we want to take in supporting learning in organizations. Martin Reeves, Simon Levin, and Daichi Ueda write a nice analysis of businesses as biological ecosystems - more specifically, as complex adaptive systems. They warn [...]
