  • When I looked up the word “Innovation” in several different dictionaries, I found that even dictionaries weren’t all in agreement on what the word actually meant. To avoid showing preferential treatment of one dictionary over another, in the remainder of my presentation, I will use a composite definition for innovation:.... That being understood, the next question is to ask what is Innovative Thinking?

  • What Is Innovation (2/2)?
    • Innovation is transformation of existing knowledge and ideas into new or better commercial product that add value to the customer.” (Carter Evans & Koop 1990)
    • Innovation could have a composite definition: a process whereby a new idea is conceived and detailed in the mind, developed into a physical entity through detailed design, analysis, experimentation, and production, and then introduced to give a company a competitive edge .

  • Determinants of Innovative Thinking
    • A means of generating innovation is to achieve three objectives:
      • make best use of and/or improve what we have today
      • determine what we will need tomorrow and how we can best achieve it,
        • to avoid the “ Dinasaur syndrome ”  
      • Generate new knowledge
        • Knowledge is preserved and transmitted among colleagues
        • Knowledge creation is the result of collaborative process.
          • Collaboration for Innovation
  • Collaborative strategies
    • Strategies like brainstorming & Mind mapping encourages open and random creative thinking and communications
      • Six thinking hats is an intuitive way to keep one’s thoughts focused while problem solving
    • Strategies like Jigsaw, TAPS advocate that there is no collaboration without communication
      • Groups need not only communication, but also share information, resources and knowledge

  • Learning to collaborate… Source: Michael Beyerlein (2006), Keynote Address at American Creativity Association International Conference 2006
  • Tools for supporting collaboration for innovation http://share.skype.com/ Need One Environment: A Collaborative Creativity Support Environment
  • Conclusions
    • Innovation is characterised by an intensive collaborative process generating and exploring various ideas that should contribute to the solution of a particular problem
    • We need to change the way that we teach
      • Add/Adopt collaborative strategies into the existing teaching approaches
    • We need environments like the idSpace environment that will:
      • Contain an integrated toolset which will be used to describe ideas, goals, features, to collaborate/communicate & share resources.
      • Exhibit extensible, informal, pluggable pedagogical approaches.

      • Social interactions as key element for creativity
    • Unfocused activities and free collaboration does not necessarily produce innovation
      • Need for effective structured designs of collaborative situations
      • Need to train people how to collaborate
