I feel that every business needs to create ideas on a continual basis. Your business will not survive with a “silver bullet”, whatever that is.
Being creative is not something you are born with, although some people are naturally skilled at the task. Creating ideas can be learned, however, you need to practice. Below I have listed a few of my favorite books on creativity.
Thinkertoys – Michael Michalko
Dubbed the handbook of creativity, Michael Michalko gives you step by step instructions on how to create ideas. A good majority of the tasks are game like activities. Overall you’ll have a lot of fun creating ideas that make a difference for your business.
