Stress and Innovation

Today in class I was talking about how stress and innovation are not the best of friends but at the same time they cannot do without each. I mean some amount of stress is needed. There is good stress and there is bad stress. The good stress is called Eu-stress. If a person is completely stress out then he wont be able to innovate as he/she will be mentally exhausted. Good stress is required as in certain deadlines or time frame. If there is none of it then the person will be completely laid back which might hinder his innovation capabilities as well.

Stress was not even mentioned under our environment posted. I randomly thought of if. Quite Innovative right?? One of the reasons I realised is that Paul has made this module stress free. There is good stress in terms of certain deadlines such as blogging which actually help me become more reflective as well as innovative.

Well I agree with Aykut that innovation is required at all levels. I was under the impression that only marketing and research and development need to be innovative but later as Paul told us that even a production manager can be more innovative. He could also come up with an Idea which could help the product. Say you are the manufacturer of the chocolate company. May be a production manager could come up with innovative ideas of addiing different flavours without changing the process of production.

    I agree with the theme that you present Abhi. Anyone in an organization is potentially an innovator. Anyone could make connections that others haven’t made and out of these mental connections may come a truly innovative idea. It is long past time that we should engage the minds of everyone in our organizations and not leave thinking to the privileged few.
