Subject: Improving Business Creativity...
I suspect that you don't often receive mail from members of staff, but Sunita
Perigan, our staff suggestion scheme manager suggested I contact you.
Firstly, I am pleased to see that you refer to the Creativity of your staff
several times in your recent inaugural letter.
Creativity is sometimes seen as the territory for marketing, but in fact it is
required everywhere. Who is charged with developing the creativity quotient
within Nabby Rational?
For the last two years, I have worked as an residential school tutor on the Open University's Creativity, Innovation and Change course, after earlier passing it with distinction.
My course project was how to improve individual creativity and I have been
developing, in my own time, a six-stage programme to do this.
The latest incarnation of this programme is in the form of an interactive
Internet Web site - I've named it the "Mental Athletics Programme" as it uses the metaphor of an athlete. Quite apt at this moment in time. I see it as sitting
next to the Archimedes suggestion scheme site and I have shown the partially finished site to Sunita
who was suitably impressed. There is a huge potential here. But I can only
do so much at home, where I am developing the site.
I am writing to you for official support for this idea.
