Inexperience in: the kind of divergent thinking necessary to innovate, in specific meeting behaviors and facilitation skills, and in innovation process, approaches and frameworks.

Authoring ideas

Jeffrey Phillips

A lot of times the concepts and ideas that sound so good in my head get misplaced and mis-translated on the page or simply don't ring with the same clarity when written that they seemed to have when I thought about them. Writing in any form is a challenge, and increasingly I think writing is very similar to innovation. What's more, writing, especially stories, takes real creativity. So perhaps we innovators can learn something from good writers.

I'm all for people thinking on their own in their dorm room. Think Jobs and Wozniak.

Innovationship
