Innovation and entrepreneurship is subject to a fundamental paradox – the trade-off between creativity and focus. Many entrepreneurs are by nature creative individuals that must balance between glazing new ideas, products or features at the one hand, and execution and determinism at the other.
The Disciplined Creativity idea is derived from the Flow concept by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi to help innovators reconcile creativity and discipline in parallel. The model will be elaborated in future posts. In the meantime, feedback on the idea is welcome. Iterative development, right?
