Mark Fisher, chief development officer at Merlin Entertainments, says there are three constraints that stop businesses becoming creative in their processes:
Time – you never think you have enough time to do anything new, so you have to physically make yourself some time to apply your imagination.
Outsider’s perspective – if nobody in your business is practised in looking at everything as if they are using fresh eyes, you’ll never see a better way of doing anything.
Bravery – creativity requires courage. You’re never going to get people to be creative if you don’t let them try something new.
