Creativity and Innovation


Without innovation and creativity the world of today, and of yesterday, would appear quite different. What is the mechanism, if there is one, that allows people and organizations to go on inventing and creating fabrics, shoes, clothes, eyeglasses, bags, furnishings, cars, and other objects for the home, work place, and leisure activities? Does their inventiveness have no limits? Does it concern true renewal or merely replication, infinite variations on a single theme? The challenge lies in dealing with the combination of creativity, as an ability of single individuals, and innovation, as a collective phenomenon. Today these two factors are often confused. Creativity and innovation were traditionally two adjacent, yet separate, research fields.
