Imagination Leads to Innovation

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery
 
 
As children we lived in a world with nothing but possibilities because of our free running imagination. Once grown into adults we have the ability to make something out of what may have started in our imagination. Without imagination, I doubt we would have laptop computers or smart phones. Or Google Glass for that matter.
 
Apparently, in the near future we may not even need to hold our smart phones to access the information on it. But rather have the information hover before your eyes like in a science fiction flick with Google Glass. See the video below for the new add-on to your glasses.
 
 


Though the Google Glass example is a fancy one, not all Lean innovations need to be fancy or high tech.

Are you utilizing imagination to be more innovative at your workplace?
