The Transition to Innovative Thinking!

We’ve probably all heard the expression, “think outside the box”.  Unfortunately, it’s been way overused and has kinda lost its impact and become cliche!

It began with a simple exercise, a darling of Management Consultants in the 70’s and 80’s.  It consisted of three rows of three dots per row.  That was without lifting your pencil off the paper , connect all the dots…It can be done.  It just requires innovative thinking.

As organizations become flatter & less hierarchical, Management Consultants are championing cross-functional and a new way to think and provide innovation.

There is no box.  Innovative thinking is not only the realm of management.

This is a huge transition.  Ideas can come from anywhere by anyone in the organization.
