To Improve Your Creative Output and Innovation, Improve Your Ideas
By Edward Glassman, PhD
Once you select an idea after idea generation, you can add to your creative output and innovation by improving the idea as much as you can. The idea-improving techniques described below help you accomplish this creatively and may stimulate additional new ideas or provide new perspectives.
This procedure works very well even with the most bizarre ideas.
Improve Your Idea Creatively
Juggle your new idea in your mind until it clicks into place. Do it this way.
Force combinations between your idea and other objects into additional new ideas. Combine remote associations and watch your creative thinking take off. Combine old ideas into new creative combinations. •
