34 Ways to Stimulate Creativity within your Organization
I am not sure about you, but sometimes I find myself in a rut and need to do something new to keep engaged with my work and also keep what I do fresh.
With that in mind, I offer up a “Creativity Checklist” to help stimulate those creative juices. And if getting creative is not your strong suit then create a Creativity “Slice team” in your organization. We use Slice Teams for any project that has a beginning and an end and does not have to be an ongoing committee. Ask for volunteers and add a few of your own choices. Charge them with thinking outside the box and to come up with as many new and creative ideas as they can.
Once they have a list they will need to narrow it down to the vital few that they think would work. It should take no more than 2-3 one hour meetings then they are done.
Using the attached “Employee Suggestion Form” they can actually get very specific with each idea and measure the potential effect on the organization as well as the financial impacts and outcomes.
Make it fun and award some prizes for the best ideas and another prize for the ones you actually implement.
