A synthesis of CREATIVITY, INNOVATION AND CHANGE
Enrique Posada Restrepo
An exercise for the coursera course CREATIVITY, INNOVATION AND CHANGE
Your Own Synthesis of CIC
Throughout this course, you’ve heard Darrell, Jack, and Kathryn talk about some of the connections they’ve made among the key
concepts of Intelligent Fast Failure, CENTER, and Creative Diversity (CD). Now it’s your turn!
Take the three course pillars – Intelligent Fast Failure ,CENTER , and Creative Diversity – and create something that represents
their synthesis in your mind. In other words, find a way to demonstrate or describe the “blending” of these concepts as you’ve
learned about them in this course.
Example #1: Write a letter to a friend that explains how you came to understand IFF, CENTER, and Creative Diversity – and how
they have become connected in your mind.
I took a courser course
Three nice professors I met
Three useful concepts they gave us
Intelligent fast failure
This I share with you:
CENTER is: Character, Entrepreneurship, owNership, Tenacity, Excellence, and Relationship
Intelligent fast failure is try, try, try, experiment, experiment, experiment, learn, learn, learn and create. An do it fast and with
Creative diversity: understand variations, extremes, accept them, enjoy, trust, work together, know your style and put it to work
Example #2: Create a collage, drawing, sculpture, or prototype that represents the three pillars in a physical form – then share it
Example #3: Put together a “CIC Resume” that describes what you’ve learned about IFF, CENTER, and CD, and how you have
applied them in your life so far.
Example #4: Take a photograph of something that represents the blending of IFF, CENTER, and CD in your mind – then write a
short paragraph about it. You might even create a postcard and send it to us!
Example #5: List the changes you have seen in yourself as a result of learning about IFF, CENTER, and CD. You might use
categories like these: different attitudes, ways of thinking, websites you now visit, ways of feeling (changes in your belief about your
creativity), habits (what you do differently each day), projects you work on, people you work with … and so on.
What other ways can you think of to show how IFF, CENTER, and Creative Diversity are connected and meaningful to YOU? We
can’t wait to see what you create!
