  • Characteristics of the creative personality• Characteristics of the creative personality: (pages 58-73) – have a great deal of energy, but they are also often quiet and at rest. – smart, yet also naive at the same time. – have a combination of playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility. – alternate between imagination and fantasy at one end, and rooted sense of reality at the other. – seem to harbor opposite tendencies on the continuum between extroversion and introversion. – are also remarkable humble and proud at the same time. – rebellious and independent. – very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well. – openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering pain yet also a great deal of enjoyment.

  • Creativity isn’t what it used to be The Accelerating Pace of Change• It has been said that at the dawn of humanity there was one new invention every 30,000 years. Today, we hear of so many new things every day, even if we are not searching.• The artistic style of ancient Egypt lasted for more than two millennia with little change. Hellenic art dominated the world around Greece for one millennium, the Renaissance took over Western Europe for three hundred years, Impressionists for sixty years. Today we have a new art movement every couple of years.• To reach 50 million users it took radio 38 years, TV needed 13 years, the Internet 4 years, the ipod 3 years, Facebook 2 years.

  • The 25 Most Innovative Companies 2010 Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 8 Mahgoub
  • Creativity isn’t what it used to be Creativity gains breadth and depth• Here are some of the issues that are being discussed in the world on creative thinking and action:• Crowdsourcing.• Global connectivity allows us to do such things as “crowdsourcing” – for ideas, for innovation, and more.• The creativity comes from the content of each individual contribution as well as from the speed of collection and the open access for a very large number of actors. Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 10 Mahgoub
  • Creativity isn’t what it used to be Creativity gains breadth and depth• The human brain.• Researchers studying the human brain are working on what physical attributes or “wiring” the creative mind may have.• And “brain plasticity”, now recognized as a fact, tells us that we can shape our minds in a number of different ways. Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 11 Mahgoub
  • Creativity isn’t what it used to be Creativity gains breadth and depth• Introversion-Extraversion.• There is a debate on introversion and extraversion and which is best suited for creative performance. Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 12 Mahgoub
  • Creativity isn’t what it used to be Creativity gains breadth and depth• Team creativity and individual creativity.• Both are extremely useful and to pitch one against the other is a mistake. Some great individuals have produced some rare creative ideas that have helped us understand the world in new, valuable ways and have transformed existing domains of knowledge or created entirely new ones.• There is also no doubt that most great innovations are the result of the work of many different people building on each other’s work. Personal creativity is indispensable for team creativity which can in turn stimulate individual creativity. Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 13 Mahgoub
  • Creativity isn’t what it used to be Creativity gains breadth and depth• “I firmly believe that what it takes to come up with an original ‘germ’ of a creative idea is very different to what happens next. The evolution of the idea and its subsequent morphing into an innovation are very different processes that the original idea creation. So, ‘Yes’, solitude is necessary for the original ideation, and ‘Yes’ collaboration is critical to taking that idea and doing something useful with it.” Andre Walton Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 14 Mahgoub
  • Creativity isn’t what it used to be Creativity gains breadth and depth• Creativity and Leadership.• As our understanding of organizational and societal creativity improves leaders at all levels are grappling with a large number of creativity challenges: – How to develop their own personal creativity – How to develop the creativity of others in their organizations or social groups – How to define the right targets for innovation – How to transform creative ideas into valuable innovation – How to create systems that foster innovation – both processes and incentives – How to shape cultures that support innovation – The many debates on creativity, show that our subject matter is multi-dimensional and thriving, while becoming at the same time richer and more complex.

  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture1. Will Alsop, ALSOP Architects Few architects have been so dedicated to such an unusual design aesthetic as maximalist Will Alsop. And fewer still have been as successful at building their designs. His nearly completed "Chips" building was inspired by piled french fries; his extension for the Ontario College of Art and Design is one of the strangest, most exciting buildings in recent memory: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 16 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 2. Yansong Ma, MAD architects Chinese architecture has often lived in the shadow of the west--copying its ideas, importing its talent. MAD is changing that, and representing the avant-garde of a new generation of homegrown Chinese talent. Heres their design for the Chinas Erdos Museum, which is currently nearing completion: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 17 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 3. Minsuk Cho and Kisu Park, MASS Studies MASS Studies is South Koreas own locally produced, internationally recognized success story. Working at a variety of scales--from city plans to galleries and boutiques-- theyve distinguished themselves with a refinement thats rare in go- go Asian architecture. Heres their design for the Korean Pavilion of the 2010 Shanghai Expo, which integrates the Korean alphabet into its structure: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 18 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 4. Rem Koolhaas, OMA You cant talk about contemporary avant-garde architecture without mentioning Koolhaas and his Office for Metropolitan Architecture, which introduced a rigor--and weirdness--to design; theyve always been at the forefront of pondering what design can be, and how it fits in modern society. The firms crowning glory is, of course, the CCTV tower in Beijing, set to open soon (current construction photo here): Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 19 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 5. Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries, MVRDV MVRDV--whose name is an acronym for the founding members-- made its name with wacky ideas, like a high- rise pig farm. But theyve since matured into an astonishingly elegant style. Heres their "Book Mountain" project, which just broke ground. The entire building turns the books into a structural, symbolic element: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 20 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 6. Shigeru Ban, Shigeru Ban Architects Ban is a genius with unconventional materials. For many years, hes created architecture using paper; he made his name with a house whose facade was simply a massive, billowing curtain. Heres his design for the Centre Pompidou Metz, which is inspired by the shape of a Chinese farmers hat: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 21 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 7. Jacques Herzog and Pierre De Mueron, Herzog & De Meuron The duo made their names introducing surface decoration into modern architecture--which used to be taboo, thanks to stern modernists like Mies van der Rohe. They made international headlines with their "Birds Nest" Olympic Stadium. But theyve always been hard to pin down. Heres their design for the CaixaForum arts center in Madrid, which was built upon the walls of an old power station: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 22 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 8. Thom Mayne, Morphosis Architects Thom Mayne made his name with aggressive, hyper-angular buildings. But his designs show more range than that. Heres his sinuous design for the Phare Tower, set to rise above Pariss La Defense business district, with groundbreaking to begin in 2010: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 23 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 9. Zaha Hadid, Zaha Hadid Architects Oh, Zaha. You design hideous, insanely expensive furniture, but still, we cant quit you because no one has been as successful making such an unabashedly futuristic vision of architecture into reality. Heres her just- unveiled design for a business district in Cairo: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 24 Mahgoub
  • The 10 Most Creative People in Architecture• 10. Norman Foster, Foster + Partners And who could forget Lord Foster, the man who parlayed high-tech architecture into a design firm with dozens of projects, with budgets ranging into the billions, all across the world. The firm has never had anything less than a masterful stroke with building logic and cutting-edge technical innovations. Heres their design for Terminal 3 of the Beijing International Airport, completed last year, which is easily the biggest, most technically advanced building in the world: Creativity and Innovation - Dr. Yasser 25 Mahgoub
