This is a book about Creative Business Ideas.
These words do not necessarily trip off the tongue. And there are those who
might suggest that “creative” and “business” are as unnatural a combination as
“business” and “ideas.” I can understand that. Most often, business thinking is based
only in numbers, research, analysis, and logic. These are comfortable staples of predictability
for business-trained minds and corporate decision makers. And for risk
avoidance in general. Creativity is for the artists and dreamers, poets and ad people.
Too often, today's managers are sold simple solutions to complex problems. But as many soon discover, simplicity is rarely effective in the face of complexity, change and diversity. Despite apparent promise, quick-fix panaceas fail because they are not holistic or creative enough. They focus on parts of the organization rather than the whole, take little account of interaction, and pander to the notion that there is one best solution in all circumstances. As instances of such failure escalate, intelligent managers are increasingly seeking to improve results through Systems Thinking....
The subject of creativity in public relations is something of an enigma. Ask
any client or senior manager what key skills are required by a PR practitioner
and they will invariably include the ability to be creative and to add
the creative dimension to their work.
In the UK, public relations practitioners work in an industry with
millions of pounds spent by organizations and clients to pay them to be
creative and practise creativity.

If you are a leader or manager your job is to get the best work out of the people on your team.
Traditional approaches to corporate management often rely on 'the carrot and the stick' —
offering rewards for good performance, using managerial authority to command people, and
penalising failure to comply.
But creative work is different.
You're probably aware that creative people have a reputation for being free spirits who hate being
told what to do. So it won't surprise you to hear that wielding the big stick will have a negative
impact on their work. ...

These days, there's hardly a mission statement that doesn't herald it, or a CEO who doesn't laud it. And yet despite all of the attention that business creativity has won over the past few years, maddeningly little is known about day-to-day innovation in the workplace. Where do breakthrough ideas come from? What kind of work environment allows them to flourish? What can leaders do to sustain the stimulants to creativity -- and break through the barriers? Teresa Amabile has been grappling with those questions for nearly 30 years.
A production that values singularity, the symbolic, and that which is intangible: creativity. These are the three pillars of the creative economy. Although this concept has been under wide discussion, dei ning it is still a work in progress because it comprises dif erent cultural, economic, and social contexts.
Creative accounting is nothing new. It has been a temptation and a problem from
the moment that accounting principles were first used to report on business
performance. There is an old joke about the accountant who is asked to add up two
and two and who produces the response ‘What would you like the answer to be?’
It is an appropriate reminder that financial measurement is not an exact science.
In fact this old joke provides a good starting point because it leads to a helpful
working definition of creative accounting.
The creative process of advertising is guided by specific goals and objectives and requires the development of a creative strategy or plan of action for achieving the goal. Creative strategy development actually begins with a thorough assessment of the marketing and promotional situation and a determination of what needs to be communicated to the marketer’s target audience. Creative strategy should, however, also be based on a number of other factors that are stated in the creative or copy platform....
Computer science has drawn from and contributed to many
disciplines and practices since it emerged as a field in the
middle of the 20th century. Those interactions, in turn,
have contributed to the evolution of information technology:
New forms of computing and communications, and new applications,
continue to develop from the creative interaction of computer
science and other fields.

Let's face it. Sometimes learning the basic techniques of drawing and art can seem boring. Just like in any skill or trade, there are moments and subjects that you would rather glaze over. Creative drawing is most likely not one of those subjects. Learning art philosophy and color theory sounds like taking courses where you're in an old dust-covered room with a teacher just reading through a textbook and putting everyone to sleep. The movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" comes to mind. When I think of creative drawing, I think of the part where Ferris and his friends go...
