Creativity is thinking up new things - Innovation is doing new things (Theodore Levitt)
To raise new questions, new possibilities, and to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination (Albert Einstein)
The things we fear most in organisations ...fluctuations, disturbance and imbalances are the primary source of creativity (Margaret Whethey)
You can't solve problems on the same level that it was created - you have to rise above it to the next level (Albert Einstein)
Companies have to nurture creativity and motivation and have to do it by building a compassionate yet performance driven corporate culture. In the knowledge economy the traditional soft people side of our business has become the new hard side (Gay Mitchell, Executive VP, HR Royal Bank)
Organisations by their very nature are designed to promote order and routine - they are inhospitable environments for innovation (Theodore Levitt)
Conceiving Success
Measuring Success
are like circles
Our choices
and practices
are framed within
a cultural context
Dominant cultural "norms"
can become constraints
"Culture-free institutions"
"Best practice"
"Not how we do things"
How do we
push beyond
the obvious?
To ensure local involvement in decision making the Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery and CERA will work alongside the Christchurch City Council, Environment Canterbury, Waimakariri District Council, Selwyn District Council, and Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu, business and community interests and the private sector in order that the planning processes under the Bill take into account local views.
Planning for the recovery of the greater Christchurch region will occur through the development of a Long-Term Recovery Strategy (Recovery Strategy) which will be developed by CERA in consultation with Christchurch City Council, Environment Canterbury, Selwyn District Council, Waimakariri District Council, Te Rūnanga o
Ngāi Tahu, and other parties deemed necessary.
Christchurch City Council will lead development of the CBD Recovery Plan (including community engagement) with input from CERA, Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu, and Environment Canterbury.
The Recovery Strategy must be developed in consultation with Christchurch City Council, Environment Canterbury, Selwyn 10 District Council, and Waimakariri District Council, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, and any other persons or organisations that the Minister considers appropriate.
is the new
Innovation is a social endeavor
requiring interaction with others
We needed cross-pollination
of ideas
We had to collaborate to bring together diverse perspectives to create innovative outputs
so we created a model that is...
Connecting with
unexpected people
resulted in ideas
that pushed imagination
Collaborating with people
outside your normal circles
leads to finding new ideas
in unexpected places
We knew the old way worked...
We also knew the old way
wouldn't work today
Imagination is the key to creating something new
Imagination transformed
memories into new ideas
Collaborative definition
of success
Pushed beyond
normal circles
Culturally informed
Industry informed

Not just
Relational definition of success
Not just about knowledge
but about community
The "soft skills"
are the hardest to develop
but can grow people
not just knowledge
is built on relationships:
with each other
with staff
with community
with industry
which really means an authentic Treaty partnership

Way to
make money

Way for
personal growth
How do you teach
To change the way we do things
we need to change the way we see things
Not just about
knowledge outcomes
of curriculum
Thinking differently about
partnerships and the
production of knowledge
Extending teacher
Pushing learning beyond
the classroom
To Grow
Maori leadership
Maori Entrepreneurship
Maori household incomes
Maori Potential for Social Change
