Platforms of Permission - Fueling Creativity

How do organizations such as Burning Man, Google, Maker Faire and The Flux Foundation enable people to consistently make such incredible inventions? What can businesses learn from these wildly creative and successful groups? They each prioritize the cultivation of “permission engines,” wherein innovations in art, science and technology flourish without limitation. When people feel inspired, engaged, and supported, and are given permission to exercise their full creative potential, the opportunities for invention are endless. But how do you foster that kind of freedom in your organization?
