If you're making a commitment to be more innovative in 2020, it needn't be a chore.
Each day I'll be sharing a fun idea to empower innovation for you and your team. By the end of 2020 you'll have 365 ideas to try, but you can get started right now.
Some of these are individual activities, others are best in a group. Each activity helps to develop one or more of the three keys to an effective innovation practice: consistency, commitment and collaboration.
They are easy, low cost, low risk ideas that anyone can implement.
Here are the first six:
#1 Keep an ideas journal - a way to capture ideas and free up your thinking
#2 Draw a picture - a way to make the abstract more concrete and enable sharing of ideas
#3 Turn it upside down - a la Mr Squiggle - take a different perspective
#4 Go to the beach - to relax and free up your creativity
#5 Find an ideas buddy - as a sounding board to test ideas
#6 Ask a child - for a viewpoint unconstrained by the limitations of 'experience'
