Summary
"Out of Our Minds explores creativity: its value in business, its ubiquity in children, its perceived absence in many adults and the phenomenon through which it disappears -- and offers a groundbreaking approach for getting it back. Author Sir Ken Robinson is an internationally recognized authority on creativity, and his TED talk on the subject is the most watched video in TED's history. In this book, Sir Ken argues that organizations everywhere are struggling to fix a problem that originates in schools and universities. Organizations everywhere are competing in a world that changes in the blink of an eye - they need people who are flexible enough to adapt, and creative enough to find novel solutions to problems old and new. Out of Our Minds describes how schools, businesses and communities can work together to bring creativity out of the closet and realize its inherent value at every stage of life. This new third edition has been updated to reflect changing technologies and demographics, with updated case studies and coverage of recent changes to education. While education and training are the keys to the future, the key can also be turned the other way; locking people away from their own creativity. Only by actively fostering creativity can businesses unlock those doors and achieve their true potential." --
