Innovation requires thinking and behaving differently and from time to it's apt to go out and create some disruption. 

Disrupting the habits and behaviours that we normally exhibit will help to create the right environment for creative and innovative thinking. If you're looking for more innovation what disruptions can you create in order to stimulate innovation?

Think of disrupting some of the following:

  • The space where you have your regular meetings - meet somewhere new or change the meeting space.
  • The habits you take in approaching your work - force yourself to approach a project differently.
  • The questions you raise - ask challenging questions to prompt innovative thinking -  such as "what if we were to get rid of_________ what would happen then?"
  • The mix of people you normally have in a brainstorming session - invite people from different departments to give a fresh totally outside perspective.

Now you've got some disruptive ideas, go forth and make them happen.
