Product description

Amazon Review

Sticky Wisdom should be required reading for anyone who's ever wondered how to have more fun at work and profit by it. The basic message is that creativity is like gold dust but it needs to be practised and worked at in organisations. It needs to become part of the organisational furniture. Dave Allan and his coauthors run ?What If!, a creative consultancy (and the title of the first edition) aimed at helping businesses move outside the proverbial tramlines, and here, minus the fee, they show how, with activities, games, insights and general lunacy.

The basic premise is that there are six main ways of being more creative--from thinking about things afresh through greenhousing (letting good ideas grow) to bravery (making them happen). Each chapter presents a range of case studies that help ground the activities in a sense of reality--for example one client managed a breakthrough in their advertising for toothpaste when they started seeing their product as liquid teeth.

Where many management books are drier than a diver's underpants this has a freshness and zing about it. It keeps you reading and it keeps you smiling too. Sticky Wisdom sends a rocket into the comfortable world of conventional thinking.--Steve Morris
