The Company Real Score a music thinking approach to business innovation

The Company Real Score – a music thinking approach to business innovation

I am working with many tools and methods. There are some I like more. Now I have compiled the, in my opinion, most important tools and instruments to start with for brand minded & people centered innovations, I call it ‘The Company Real Score’, have a look!

What is it?
The company real score is a collection of business tools and instruments to map and visualize your brand. It is a collection of core elements for orchestrating and conducting ‘brand minded & people centered’ innovations.

Why should you use it?
1. To visualize and communicate what is most important for your brand.
2. To identify strategic paradoxes that can be used in innovation projects.
3. To use it as a ‘brand minded & people centered’ starting point.

Elevator-Pitch vs. Pater Noster Pitch

The New Job Circus and C’n’B in Cologne was great. Most fun part was the pater-noster-pitch with mentors.

All 11 winners of the New Job Circus could pitch their ideas in one round of the pater noster, very sporty and very exciting!

Creativity & Business Convention with New Job Circus

From 20th tot 22nd June there will be the Creativity & Business Convention in Cologne, Germany. The C’n’B (#cnb12) is organized in combination with the c/o Pop Festival – a nice combination of creativity, business and music.

I am happy to take part in the New Job Circus (initiated by Peter Schreck and Holger Nils Pohl) to present my concept of CREATIVE COMPANION and Music Thinking.

CREATIVE COMPANION

About New Job Circus

The world of work is changing fast. Temporary project-based collaboration with freelancers and specialist micro-companies is absolutely standard in the agency world and becoming increasingly common for companies too.

Against a background of digitalisation and other developments, we are interested in innovative and intelligent specializations, new niche services and “jobs 2.0”. The New Job Circus programme of presentations, discussions and workshops is designed to trigger an open dialogue between “small” and “large” organisations. One ring, 10 winning micro-companies, ample knowledge transfer and a myriad of networking opportunities.

The Circus is geared towards generating responses and solutions to the following questions:

1. What new job profiles are currently emerging in the freelance/micro-company market?

2. What new job profiles will agencies and companies be looking for in the future?

3. What kind of interfaces and processes will be needed to bring together knowledge, supply and demand and build up an infrastructure to support partnerships and collaboration?

Three TED-Talk-Perspectives on Creativity and Happiness

List making – the design approach


Graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister takes the audience on a journey through moments of his life that made him happy. Renowned for album covers, posters and his recent book of life lessons, designer Stefan Sagmeister invariably has a slightly different way of looking at things. I also like the idea to have lists for e.g. ‘things in my life I have done so far’

Collecting – The storytelling approach


Jonathan Harris is an artist and storyteller working primarily on the Internet with a human approach. He is using computer science, statistics, story telling and visual arts as tools. His works include projects like the lyrical Balloons of Bhutan or the storytelling platform and ‘public library of human experience’ Cowbird.

Flow – the scientific approach


Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi asks what’s the source of happiness? And his answer comes down to this: Beyond a certain point (and it’s not very far), money doesn’t affect happiness too much. Rather, as his research shows, we tend to be most happy when we get immersed, almost lost in, being creative and performing at our best. It’s an ecstatic state that he calls “flow.”
