To be creative or innovative can be said to be original, imaginative, expressive, ground breaking, idea generative or inventive. However, demonstrating one or more of these behaviors is not the domain of only creative ‘types’. The reality is that in the right circumstances, any individual can be creative, just by having a view or idea that is relatively different to others. This storyboard focuses on both the individual skills that are involved in being creative, as well as on how the creativity process works best by using a four stage cycle:
- Initiate: Be inquisitive and open
- Develop: Nourish and nurture ideas to help them grow
- Evolve: Find the right prototyping opportunities
- Action: Bravely follow through and persist
