Podcast 138 — Is it time we stopped discussing innovation?

What is innovation? Can anyone be creative? On this week’s GoodPractice Podcast, full-time doodler Simon Heath joins Ross Garner and Owen Ferguson to discuss.

We ask why the concept of ‘innovation’ is so attractive and debate the notion that we should bring our creative pursuits into the workplace.

In this episode you’ll find out about:

  • Why ‘innovation’ doesn’t have to be groundbreaking
  • Why we have to accept risk to let creativity flourish
  • The difference between individual creativity and group creativity
