Innovation isn’t a Linear Process

LDRLB

Zig Zag grew out of Sawyer’s Explaining Creativity , in which he summarizes all of the research on the creative process and arrives at an 8-stage model that all creativity and innovation efforts move through. While lots of creativity and innovation books promote their trademark process, one thing that makes Sawyer’s unique is his assertion (supported by research) that his eight stages aren’t really stages at all, not in the sense of a linear progression through stages.

Purpose Precedes Process

QAspire

If process is a vehicle, purpose is the compass. Purpose gives a definite direction to processes.

But your organization shouldn’t have as the mistake-proofing (obviously not mistake-proofing at all) that when the process doesn’t quite work well then rely on a massive social media outcry which is a signal to us to straighten out the issue.

The Six-Question Process

Marshall Goldsmith

The Six-Question Process for coaching is an approach that I have seen work consistently well with executives. This process has produced measurable change in effectiveness (as evaluated by direct reports) with four CEOs that I have personally coached. If executives view coaching as a complex and time-consuming process, they won’t do it! Fortunately direct reports (at the executive level) seldom want or need coaching to be a time-consuming process.
