All in Creativity

Welcome to Filament's Monday Morning Meeting. Here are a few of the things we'd like to share to help you make this week a good one!

Just because we have more ways to communicate than ever doesn't mean we've gotten better at it:

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”  – George Bernard Shaw (via Swiss Miss)

Solving problems forward isn't always as effective as solving them backward.

It is not enough to think about difficult problems one way. You need to think about them forwards and backward...  Let's take a look at some examples. Say you want to improve innovation in your organization. Thinking forward, you'd think about all of the things you could do to foster innovation. If you look at the problem by inversion, however, you'd think about all the things you could do that would discourage innovation. Ideally, you'd avoid those things. Sounds simple right? I bet your organization does some of those ‘stupid' things today.
