Why we need to innovate how we learn to innovate | Alex Bruton #Innovation #Creativity
Why did an engineering firm perform no better at some basic innovation tasks than a class of grade 6 and 7 students? In this surprising and visually engaging talk, Alex Bruton urges us to stop competing to spread the Post-It-Notes-on-the-wall-because-they-are-cool and the let’s-get-the-keywords-into-the-annual-report notions of innovation. He shares a simple, powerful model for innovation literacy and challenges us to find the trust in ourselves to make innovation accessible to anyone, anywhere.
