Had fun hosting some curious reporters from Asia @ Google yesterday to give them a first hand experience about our culture.

“It is important to ask big question or even strange question, having thought of changing the world. I’m pleased that Googlers are willing to ask these questions, and I am encouraging them to actively involve those in various idea development.” - Chosun Biz

“Let’s just change one word for innovation, from ‘Yes, but’ to ‘Yes, and’, which ends up bringing positive thinking. Even though one idea looks stupid at the beginning, it could be transformed into a highly interesting idea if some nourishments can be added to." - The Electronic Times

Here's a virtual reality glimpse of our creative process. To help leaders and teams bring innovation to the workplace, we have shared our best practices in an immersive Creative Skills for Innovation Lab at The Garage @Google. goo.gl/wuP09L

Get your #cardboard ready!
Huge thanks to my amazing team who made this possible.
This is the deceptively simple, three-step process Google uses to come up with its most innovative ideas.

Google hat es zu einem eigenen Verb gebracht. Das verdankt Google auch einem stetigen Fluss an Innovationen. Innovationschef Frederik G. Pferdt sorgt dafür, dass der nicht versiegt.

Innovation and creativity may not come naturally to everyone but that doesn't mean it cannot be fostered, encouraged and developed, according to the head of innovation and creativity programmes at Google Inc.

"Explorer la nouveauté!
De façon très pratique, l’innovateur se vante de ne jamais dîner deux fois dans le même restaurant. Mais ce point-là mérite débat." :-)

Excited to inspire thousands of small business owners live and on video stream on how to start small, but think bigger to shape our future. Technology is a growth engine, but innovation lies people's ability to have a healthy disregard for the impossible.

Excited to share my personal view on Silicon Valley's not-so-secret sauce and how we live, work & play in this documentary.

Story
Tagline
Innovation by design.
Introduction
Frederik is the Head of Innovation & Creativity Programs at Google and leads a talented team which catalyzes 10x thinking at Google by building a thriving innovation environment.
Frederik is co-founder of “The Garage” at Google and was nominated as a visiting scholar at the Center for Design Research (d.school), Stanford University and research scholar at EdLab, Columbia University. As the founder of LearningDesign:Lab, he created award-winning user-centered design experiences for various groups -- from kindergartners, to teachers, to CEOs. Currently lecturing at Stanford University, he feels lucky to see students being empowered through user-centered, prototype-driven design so that they can do cool things that matter in the world. He currently lives in Silicon Valley with his wife and two sons, and draws inspiration from his boys' childish minds and playfulness.
As a true explorer of life, Frederik rarely does things twice to keep discovering new things everyday. So far, he has done only one thing twice, which he is very proud of. Ask him about it.
