Our video gets a Guardian airing:
Your desk is one of the worst places in the world to get creative. But as this animated video shows, it is still possible to come up with a killer idea wherever you might be

Thrilled to be writing for the Guardian...
Managers need to realise that creativity doesn't respond to orders. James Allen outlines why management's role in the corporate creative process is an oxymoron: creativity can't be managed, it can only be encouraged

Latest post from HR journalist Peter Crush - recommended read.
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times. Successful businesses are all about creating ‘cultures of creativity’ (as I explored in my previous post). Noble though this cliché is, it’s not exactly explanatory of what organisations should really do to achieve it. Christina Iaonnidis, a businesswoman and co-author of Your Loss: How to Win [...]

Part of the content of our Evaluate workshops looks at how and why we make decisions – for example why we choose to pursue one idea over another. One way of doing this is exploring how we view our world through ‘mental models’, which provide a convenient way of making sense of experience. One of these is Confirmation Bias.
