From Silos to Shrek Ears

{Article originally posted to AmbITion Extranet by Adrian Slatcher}
We attended a fascinating agency training session yesterday in Birmingham with Richard Watts from Think Development, at the Ikon Gallery. We were discussing the value of “storytelling” in both developing and disseminating a vision for an organisation – and particularly how stories can be used to include people in the organisation, and beyond, in new projects and activities. Richard mentioned this article “From Silos the Shrek Ears” – how willingness to encourage innovation, through recognising that “failure” isn’t a bad thing, but something to learn from – and a sign of a more innovative, less hierarchical organisation.
