Kurzbeschreibung

IDEO founder and Stanford d.school creator David Kelley and his brother Tom Kelley, IDEO partner and the author of the bestselling The Art of Innovation, have written a powerful and compelling book on unleashing the creativity that lies within each and every one of us.

Too often, companies and individuals assume that creativity and innovation are the domain of the "creative types."  But two of the leading experts in innovation, design, and creativity on the planet show us that each and every  one of us is creative.  In an incredibly entertaining and inspiring narrative that draws on countless stories from their work at IDEO, the Stanford d.school, and with many of the world's top companies, David and Tom Kelley identify the principles and strategies that will allow us to tap into our creative potential in our work lives, and in our personal lives, and allow us to innovate in terms of how we approach and solve problems.  It is a book that will help each of us be more productive and successful in our lives and in our careers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Kreatives (Selbst-) Vertrauen 31. Januar 2014
Format:Taschenbuch
“Creative Confidence: Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All” ist der Titel des neuen Buches der Brüder Tom & David Kelley. Kurz zusammengefasst beinhaltet das Buch begeisternde Beispiele mit praktischen Hinweisen und Tips, beständig wiederkehrende Werbebotschaften für die Standford d.school und einen fast sprituellen Aufruf zum kreativen Wandel. Das der Spaß beim Lesen nicht zu kurz kommt versteht sich bei diesen Autoren schon fast von selbst…
Der Grundgedanke, dass jeder von uns kreativ sein kann und das Kreativität in der Welt der Erwachsenen oft durch verschiedene Barrieren gebremst wird, zieht sich durch das gesamte Buch. Lesenswert wird das Buch durch die zahlreichen praktischen Beispiele und Methoden in denen anschaulich dargestellt wird wie Kreativität in den Alltag gebracht werden kann und wie hierdurch vor allem auch noch bessere Ergebnisse erzielt werden können. Hier die Inhaltsübersicht, verlinkt jeweils auf die Beschreibung der einzelnen Kapitel auf der Webseite des Buches:

Preface – a book from two brothers
Introduction - the heart of innovation
Chapter 1: flip - from design thinking to creative confidence
Chapter 2: dare – from fear to courage
Chapter 3: spark - from blank page to insight
Chapter 4: leap – from planning to action
Chapter 5: seek – from duty to passion
Chapter 6: team – creatively confident groups
Chapter 7: move – creative confidence to go
Chapter 8: next – embrace creative confidence

Ein lohnenswertes Buch für alle, die hin und wieder aus dem Unternehmensalltag ausbrechen, Paradigmen hinterfragen oder einfach etwas mehr Kreativität in ihren Alltag bringen möchten. Unter dem Titel "Kreativität & Selbstvertrauen" wird das Buch wohl bald auch in deutscher Sprache erscheinen.

My wife and I have most enjoyed this book. As performing artists, of course quite a lot is familiar, but the Kellys bring it over well-organised and with a light touch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How almost anyone can develop a creative, human-centered mindset and help achieve breakthrough innovations 15. Oktober 2013
Von Robert Morris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read Tom Kelley's books and am well aware of David Kelley's leadership of IDEO and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design ("d.school") at Stanford University. Individually, each is among the most influential and highly regarded authorities on creative and innovative thinking. What we have in this volume is a unique and compelling collaboration on information, insights, and counsel that can help their reader to "unleash the creative potential within." They insist -- and I agree -- that literally anyone can live a more creative life, at work and elsewhere, in all situations in which they have problems to solve, questions to answer, goals to set, tasks to complete, and relationships to nourish.

The Kelleys challenge all manner of misconceptions, such as the common refrain "I'm just not creative." In fact, they suggest, "As brothers who have worked together for thirty years at the forefront of innovation, we have come to see this set of misconceptions as 'the creativity myth.' It is a myth that far too many people share. This book is about the opposite of that myth. It is about what we call 'creative confidence.' And at its foundation is the belief that we are [begin italics] all [end italics] creative...Creative confidence is a way of seeing that potential and your place in the world more clearly, unclouded by anxiety and doubt. We hope you'll join us on our quest to embrace creative confidence in our lives. Together, we can all make the world a better place."

Incremental innovation may sometimes be the most effective way to improve one or more aspects of one's life as well as of a company. For example, in 2004, a leadership team led by Jørgen Vig Knudstorp transformed LEGO - "brick by brick" - into one of the world's most innovative as well as most profitable and fastest growing toy companies.

These are among the dozens of business subjects and issues of special interest and value to me, also listed to indicate the scope of the Kelleys' coverage.

o Creativity Now (Pages 7-10)
o Three Key Factors to Balance (23-26)
o Design-Driven Innovation (26-28)
o Nurturing Creative Thinkers, and A Growth State of Mind (32-36)
o The Failure Paradox, and Designing for Courage (44-49)
o Permission to Fail (53-57)
o Drawing Confidence (63-67)
o Cultivate a Creative Spark (78-81)
o Empathize with Your End User (89-92)
o Do Observations in the Field (93-98)
o Reframe Challenges (103-105)
o Cultivate Creative Serendipity (109-111)
o The "Do Something" Mindset: Live in the Active Voice (119-122)
o Experiment to Learn (134-136)
o Find Your Sweet Spot (165-167)
o Strategies to Get Started With (253-260)

Here are three of several reasons why I think this is Tom Kelley's most valuable book...thus far...and why I think his collaboration with David Kelley achieves a level of excellence that neither brother could (probably) have achieved alone. First, like world-class musicians in a jazz band, they are playing the same song (let's say "All Blues" with Miles Davis) but with different instruments and with improvisation that enriches rather than detracts from the pure quality of the group's sound. The Kelleys are masters of carefully nurtured spontaneity.

Also, they are passionate advocates, indeed evangelists about helping as many people as possible to think innovatively about how they can [begin italics] live [end italics] more innovatively. The Kelleys know that developing that mindset will require courage to overcome significant -- albeit self-generated -- fear. That is why the ten strategies they recommend near the conclusion of the book take human nature (for better or worse) into full account. Although heaven knows the disruptive innovations for which IDEO is renowned are exciting, the reality is that most people have convinced themselves that they are incapable of generating them, even when in collaboration with others. They lack courage because they lack confidence.

Finally, the Kelleys are committed to being eager and enthusiastic collaborators with their readers as well as with their students, their colleagues and their clients. To those plagued by self-doubts, struggling with self-imposed limits, they have an emotional intelligence that provides a reassurance, anchored in reality rather than delusional PMA, that people really can believe in what is possible for them. First, they have to imagine it and then summon the courage to believe they can achieve it. Any journey of personal discovery is necessarily perilous. Tom Kelley and David Kelley are ideal companions for that journey.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Innovation Secrets by the IDEO Brothers 17. Oktober 2013
Von Jonathan Littman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
David Kelley is the Horse Whisperer of innovation and brother Tom is the storyteller. Together they’ve written a book that’s unique in that it celebrates how nearly anyone can tap into a creative vein. Humility, openness and informed faith are part of the IDEO method, and David and Tom show that with empathy and a design driven approach the fear that reigns us in can be replaced by a fresh can-do spirit. And yes, I know both Kelleys well because I co-authored the Art of Innovation and Ten Faces of Innovation with Tom.

Creative Confidence is a new slant on this critical subject. It will be huge for managers and companies that have been intimidated by mega Silicon Valley success stories because it shows how small, perceptive changes can deliver big results by anyone in any industry. It's a welcome break from the reams of books focusing on Internet titans and overnight billionaires. It's the kind of book that just might get you to take the first critical step toward your breakthrough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Inspiring Call to Action 20. November 2013
Von Karl Oskar Burdahl Teien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Creative Confidence is more than an interesting read - it is a call to action. Before being exposed to the IDEO approach to innovation, I would never consider myself as particularly creative or entrepreneurial, but after understanding creativity as something intrinsically human, and a muscle that can be trained, I experienced first hand what a structured approach to innovation could do for my own social business. The Kelley brothers' refreshing take on creativity kills the myths of what it means to be innovative, and sees creativity as something that simply needs the right channels through which to be unleashed.

This book is a much needed confidence boost that awakens the creative entrepreneur within us all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Paradigm and Perspective Changing Book (but only if you let it) 31. Oktober 2013
Von R. Rehnquist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Whenever IDEO publishes a book or some other sort of media, it is important to take attention. IDEO is one of the companies spearheading the revolution to change traditional business models by focusing on human-centered design. IDEO has been around since 1991 but has been thinking this way since its inception and thus is way ahead of the curve. Their approach to human-centered design has shown multiple times to be one of the surefire ways to guarantee customer loyalty and longevity. In Creative Confidence David and Tom show ways for both consumer and creator to keep their humanity in an otherwise leviathan capitalistic system. The end result is a better product and a more enjoyable time creating the product.

The Kelley brothers start off the book offering you a dose of confidence right off the bat by saying "everyone is creative". Yes, fair enough, right? People designated as "creatives" don't have a monopoly on creativity and creativity isn't genetically inbred. It can be learned. Yes, some people will have a greater inclination towards creative thought processes and ideas than others but that does not defeat the fact that creativity can still be exercised and strengthened like a muscle.

The book gives a renewed sense of optimism to anyone wishing that they could come up with alternative solutions to problems rather than just copy/pasting from preexisting ideas. Most creative and innovative people fail quite a bit in their lives, its just that their mammoth successes tend to otherwise overshadow many months/years of frustration in the studio/lab.

Great book, I definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to approach their work in a new, more optimistic light and mindset. Refreshing and eye-opening book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Half Way Through 29. Januar 2014
Von Mark McCoy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is good for those folks who can't get started in their own world of thinking and especially acting differently on approaches to projects and problem solving. It helps you understand yourself and others mental roadblocks in business. I'm only half way in to the book, but am enjoying it. It's an easy read and fun, but also practical. I recommend it and will be telling my employee and business partners about it.
