Daniel Pink, in his book A Whole New Mind , repeating arguments posed throughout the 20th century, argues that we are entering a new age where creativity is becoming increasingly important. In this conceptual age , we will need to foster and encourage right-directed thinking representing creativity and emotion over left-directed thinking representing logical, analytical thought. However, this simplification of 'right' versus 'left' brain thinking is not supported by the research data.
Nickerson  provides a summary of the various creativity techniques that have been proposed. These include approaches that have been developed by both academia and industry:. Experiments suggest the need for closure of task participants, whether as a reflection of personality or induced through time pressure , negatively impacts creativity. Promoting intrinsic motivation and problem solving are two areas where educators can foster creativity in students.
Students are more creative when they see a task as intrinsically motivating, valued for its own sake. Providing students with a choice of activities to complete allows them to become more intrinsically motivated and therefore creative in completing the tasks. Teaching students to solve problems that do not have well defined answers is another way to foster their creativity. This is accomplished by allowing students to explore problems and redefine them, possibly drawing on knowledge that at first may seem unrelated to the problem in order to solve it.
It involves looking at familiar things with a fresh eye, examining problems with an open mind, making connections, learning from mistakes and using imagination to explore new possibilities.
Creativity has also been identified as one of the key 21st century skills and as one of the Four Cs of 21st century learning by educational leaders and theorists in the United States.

Rather than just going straight from idea to implementation, it is important to experiment first. This involves setting hypotheses as to why an idea will add value to the customer, then creating a minimum viable product MVP — the most basic version of the idea that will still allow for learnings.
Designing an experiment to test hypotheses using the MVP is the next step. Based on the results, teams can iterate or change course accordingly. Experimentation is a very effective way to help reduce the risk inherent in innovation. Professional Development: Generating creative and innovative ideas: maximising team creativity. Researchers have found that creativity is dramatically enhanced when people are given autonomy.
When employees perceive they have a choice in how things can be done, they are significantly more likely to engage in trial and error and, through this, find more effective ways of doing things. While goals need to be clearly set, managers need to ensure that projects have flexibility in how they can be tackled to allow employees to experience freedom and autonomy in their work. One factor that has been identified as critical for creating a culture where innovation thrives is ensuring that different points of view are valued and that ideas are regularly debated.
Organisations also need to avoid the temptation to recruit people who are similar in views and backgrounds to existing staff — doing so will only discourage debate and encourage homogeneity of thinking. Dr Amantha Imber is the founder of innovation consultancy Inventium.
Her last book, The Innovation Formula , tackles the topic of how organisations can create a culture where innovation thrives. Imber can be contacted at amatha inventium. Read next: How to predict the future. Read more now.
These are the five critical behaviours in which to engage. Find the right amount of challenge Individuals feeling challenged by their work is a critical driver of innovation.
