Innovating With Style: Four strategies of creative, innovative thinking

We are all unique individuals. Each one of us has different habits, talents, knowledge, values, interests, and ways of expressing ourselves. And, while we all have the capacity to be innovative, we approach creative and innovative thinking in different ways.

Our years of research and experience have identified four distinct Innovation Styles® that we use in different proportions, according to our preferences:

    • Visioning: to envision the ideal future
    • Modifying: to refine and optimize what has come before
    • Exploring: to discover new and novel possibilities
    • Experimenting: to combine and test many unique combinations

Recognizing the different ways we like to innovate is one of the keys to working together successfully. Another is developing versatility in using all four Innovation Styles. As you invite a wider variety of ideas into your work, your work will be more productive and have greater impact as you seek to find innovative solutions to your work challenges.
