February 2010
Leadership Excellence;Feb2010, Vol. 27 Issue 2, p19
The author focuses on the five modes of inspiration that can be combined with creativity to produce innovation in an organization. He explores the concept of recreational inspiration which functions as a release for the conscious mind from its standard routine or direct concerns. He examines serendipitous inspiration as a form of inspiration that cannot be engineered. The author also analyzes the concept of targeted discovery as seeking sources of inspiration with a specific real-time objective in mind.
