Creativity and Leadership

Posted by Plish on October 2, 2008

Enlightening article in the Harvard Business Review. 

The article highlights various ways in which companies’ cultures (which are largely due to management) are not conducive to creativity. 

Personally, some of the lack of rewarding the innovation process is largely due to the fact that few companies have metrics to measure what’s been done correctly during the innovation process.  Standard performance metrics do not touch on things like usability of discoveries for other business units, patent landscape development, etc.

The article proposed the model of the music producer as a model for creativity management.  I think it’s a great idea and should be looked at. 

What do you think?
