Creativity in All Careers
A few weeks ago, I interviewed creativity consultant Jo Ann Braheny for the Career Opportunities podcast
. This interview started me thinking about how important it is to integrate creativity into your career, regardless of the type of work you do. You can no longer divide jobs into "creative" and "functional". Much like my belief that every career has become a high-tech career (See http://welchwrite.com/dewelch/ce/2006/co060217.asp
), every career can and should also be a creative career. If you embrace this fact, you can take your career to an entirely new level.Next Friday: April 12, 2007: Productive Waiting

What I'm reading...
I discovered this book through a presentation from Tech Nation with Dr. Moira Gunn
, delivered via IT Conversations
. She interviews one of the authors Curt Carlson, CEO of SRI International, one of the co-authors. It is well worth a listen and a read.
“Innovation—mystery or mastery? For Carlson and Wilmot, the answer is definitely the latter. Following the example of Deming’s approach to quality—another of those magically powerful substances—they lay out a thoughtful, practical methodology for managing innovation projects through to successful outcomes. Sure, in that one percent inspiration there may be the occasional moment of mystery, but for those of us operating in the ninety-nine percent perspiration part of the field, it’s terrific to finally get a great user’s manual.” —Goeffrey Moore, author of Dealing with Darwin: How Great Companies Innovate at Every Phase of Their Evolution"
