  • What is the difference
    Creative = Intrinsic
    Innovative = Extrinsic
    Innovation is the practical application of creativity.
    Art example
  • If you are innovative – use the tool wisely grasshopper
    Go where you are appreciated
    Be prepared to be misunderstood
    Let your passion drive you
    Be prepared to fail
    Be prepared to deal with……
  • It’s OK, not everyone can be… or should be – We need the Nurturers and Analysts
    Sit back and observe… Never say “Can’t”
    Celebrate success
    No “I told you so” when the fail.. They will
    Enjoy and encourage their enthusiasm
    Just because you can’t see the vision, I does not mean it does not exist or will work.
  • Identify the need
    Identify the tolerance – Must be external evaluation
    Identify the resources
    Start small– pick a department or project where innovation is needed and will be appreciated
    Measure, evaluate and modify as you proceed.
