Gordon and I had the incredible opportunity at Dent 2017 to share our perspective on the current state of innovation, creativity and imagination in our world today. Inspired by an article in The Wall Street Journal that recently claimed that Americans are in an “innovation slump,” and that incremental changes have replaced meaningful advances, we sought to debunk the author’s theory that we are truly out of big ideas. Contrary to the WSJ article, we believe that there is plenty of room for big ideas… Perhaps we are just running low on imagination.
“Culture isn’t ONE aspect of the game – it is THE game. In the end, an organization is nothing more than the collective capacity of its people to create value.” - Louis V. Gerstner, Jr., former CEO of IBM and author of Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance. In order to create new value for a company and its clients – it’s essential to design and perpetually optimize an environment that attracts top talent, promotes collaboration, and enables inspiration and creativity.
