Course - Strategic Creativity

 (To be opened in Sep. 2015)

Creative people often feel somewhat guilty if asked about how they managed to come up with something because they simply “saw” it. It seemed obvious to them after a while. This is due to their ability to 1) associate prior experiences and 2) synthesize them, creating different ones.

Many people in our industries have not enjoyed diverse experiences which means they don't have enough “dots” to be able to connect them. They end up designing solutions that are too "linear", without a broad enough perspective with regards to the challenge before them. As Steve Jobs told Wired magazine in February of 1995: "The broader our understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have."... [-]
