Creative Thinking

Creativity and Product Development

Creativity is at the heart of entrepreneurship, enabling entirely new ways of thinking and working. Entrepreneurs identify opportunities, large or small, that no one else has noticed. Good entrepreneurs also have the ability to apply that creativity–they can effectively marshal resources to a single end. They have drive—a fervent belief in their ability to change the way things are done, and the force of will and the passion to achieve success. They have a focus on creating value—they want to do things better, faster, cheaper. And they take risks—breaking rules, cutting across accepted boundaries, and going against the status quo.” Accenture
