Big businesses risk losing out to social enterprises unless they adapt A gathering of sustainability leaders hosted by Sir Richard Branson and Jamie Oliver has been warned that big businesses will be swept aside by emerging social enterprises unless they start changing their business models and contribute more to society. Boudewijn Poelmann, who founded the hugely successful Dutch Postcode Lottery, which now operates in Sweden and the UK, said that many major businesses would disappear over the next 20 years, to be replaced by emerging social enterprises, unless they took off their blinkers and responded to the environmental and social challenges the world is facing.

This can be done by allowing everyone to think more freely while working on the task, gathering ideas that have the slightest relation to the problem itself rather than looking straight for a practical solution. Though it might sound like a waste of time, many corporations have found appealing answers to their problems by using such method.

The Divergent Thinker by Dr. Lovecky Divergent thinkers can be exceptionally creative. If the ability to think divergently is related to being creative, then all creative people are divergent thinkers, but not the other way around. It's the ability to direct the divergent ideas into something else that makes a person creative. Creativity is not just making something though. It can also be the process of enabling others to see one's vision of how things ought to be. The Nature of Ambition az said... well, that's so true. Soemtimes though, it's not due to ambition.
