Hello!

We start the edition with a quote from Max McKeown. Ideation is the gateway to innovation and creativity is the floodgate for new ideas. This edition features an article on how creativity and innovation are the two sides of the same coin. They are part of a wheel that propels a company towards high growth, if used correctly that is.

Featured articles from the web discuss the eight pillars of innovation that is part of Google. Taking timely breaks is also one of them. The next article is about how important creativity and innovation is to business. Everyone in a company is capable of generating ideas and insights.

The third article is about why the management must encourage innovation and creativity. The last article is how maintaining Electronic Medical Records has increased innovation and creativity in healthcare. It is interesting because not many picture creativity and innovation in healthcare.

The infographic shows what Creativity and Innovation is and what kind of a mindset a creative and innovative person, respectively have. We also have a fragment of the book ‘Inseparable Twins’. It tells how though paradoxical Creativity and Innovation sounds, they are a paired principle. This book has 12 of them.

In the final section, we often see this scene. Some companies are inept at using new approaches that can give them tremendous growth. By demonstrating ineptness, they shun the usage of Creativity and Innovation. Our actors Anny and Orry are talking to a boss who is not used to demonstrating boldness in using new ideas. Have you come across such a thing? Nonetheless, it is funny.

I hope you enjoy this edition of Spark. Happy World Creativity and Innovation Day.
