But, as an innovator and innovation advisor I wasn't completely resistant fighting uncertainty by rationalization...make more with less.
For many years now, I co-operate with Hermann Fuchs. He, a macro-economist by education, runs a financial controlling advisory firm. His core competency embraces real options…but he's also doing picture carving arts: see Sehfelder
I'm not an artist. But I believe that creativity is a skill that can be learned to some extent. And I believe thinking like artists help us to be innovative and come up with new ideas.
Is there something, like an artists tool kit? Maybe. But more important, they
- take risk
- work under uncertainty
- deal with imperfection
- deal with critics
- develop a space where they fill their creations in
Beside the project work Hermann and I meet quite frequently to just shake things up without being bound to concrete projects...
