Disruptive innovation is the key to achieving growth in a fast-changing world, according to Harvard Business School Professor Clay Christensen.
It’s exciting to think that we may one day understand the mysteries of our brains. But we should also remember how little we know now, despite a growing body of neuroscience research.
Some great things this week from one of my favourite websites, 99U, which calls itself an ‘education initiative for creatives’, and is a rich resource of advice and inspiration on creativity and productivity.
Harvard Business School Professor, author of ‘The Innovator’s Dilemma’ and disruptive innovation theorist, Clayton Christensen’s advice is founded on his belief that creativity can be taught. He doesn’t stake his claim lightly, investing years of research with counterparts to produce ‘The Innovator’s DNA’.
Today we know a lot about creativity and how it happens. We’ve watched the neural pathways of the brain light up when people solve tasks. But perhaps we haven’t learned much that the ancients didn’t already know.
