  • 1. “Running an Agile Fortune 500 Company” Aditya Yadav, *
  • 2. * *A Typical Global Company *Fortune 500/1000 *200 Divisions *40 Countries *25000 Employees
  • 3. @ Acme Inc. *
  • 4. * *Original Question “Is Creativity from birth or can it be cultivated?” *The Correct Question - “Allow me to explain Creativity and a couple of adjunct concepts before trying to answer that.”
  • 5. And The Philosophy Behind The Answer *
  • 6. * Imagination Learn Basic Rules & Patterns Imagine in your Brain Creativity Tinker/Experiment - Test & Try for One Context Design, Create, Invent - for One Context Innovation Extrapolate - Rules & Patterns for other Context(s) Innovate - Solve for other Contexts
  • 7. * *Imagination is – Projection of Reality *Creativity is – Imagination made Manifest *Innovation is – about Delivering Value *** Imagination almost always precedes Creation… its safe to say you cannot create what you or someone else cannot imagine!!! With the caveat – It might seem (???) some (very few) things are created by accident… without any prior imagination… it might seem so but there is a whole of background imagination and effort that precedes it…
  • 8. * * The Human Brain is a Huge Huge Pattern Finding/Extracting and (Re)Combining machine * All the imagination happens in the mind. If the brain cannot comprehend something it cannot imagine/project it. * Wireframing, Tinkering, Prototyping, Sketching are tools that Aide (i) Imagination & (ii) Creativity i.e. Making Imaginations Manifest * By patents and other protectionist measures you lose out on Innovation. You might also withhold or delay Invention and auxilary/(re)combinatorial Imagination/Creativity/Innovation. That’s the actual cost of protectionist law's to the Rest Of The World. * When you stop questions/ideas/imagination in their root @ work. you are killing imagination and the steps beyond it. * When everyone is free to ask "why?" they form new rules and patterns, imagine/project- reality/experiment and continue to invent and innovate. * Preventing that Kills the entire Pipeline! So does Overwork, Exhaustion, Compliance, Processes, Documentation etc. * Everyone was born a Kid, and is inherently imaginative and creative. If not obstructed nothing needs to be done to make it happen… * Golden Rule: Don’t confuse Creativity with (Fine) Arts!!!... Creativity is a much larger concept of making imagination manifest!!!
