The Book

In today's economy and society, business as usual doesn't work anymore. We are faced with massive, disruptive crises, on an individual level as well as on an organizational and systemic level. To deal with it, it demands new ways of thinking and doing, new approaches and values. It demands creativity. So, how do we foster creativity? As a core competence of artists, one possibility is to learn from artistic creativity and transfer its principles to the challenges we are faced with. In her book, Doris Rothauer analyzes the different notions of creativity over time and history, pursues current developments in neurology, art, design, economy and the social business, and advocates for a change of paradigm, where creativity is the key to a new society and economy.
