Dimension #1 – Creative Management Systems Intro

Creative systems manage innovation by facilitate journeys of discovering in pursuit of value

Creative Systems are designed to: manage <innovation>, change, and shared creation.  
Discovery is at the heart of innovation.  Discovery is the act of creating, trying, and learning something new, a creative opportunity to discover something of value.
Creative leaders best facilitate innovation via a five-part journey of value discovery:
Shared Journey of Conception – together, envisioning a solution to un-met needs
Shared Discovery of a Solution – together, iteratively creating envisioned solution
Shared Characterization – together, eliminating chaos, bad ingredients and friction
Shared Journey of Traction – finding viral adoption means leading to natural growth
Journey of Monetization – finding a way to pay for more creative opportunities
If your ‘creative management system’ isn’t trying new things and learning from those experiences: perhaps its products have reached maturity; or, your system has been designed to address known problems with slight improvements or customizations.
