- Developing innovative systems: creative ideation
- Dormann, Claire; Lindgaard, Gitte
- This paper addresses the identification of creative criteria to support the development of innovative systems. In idea generation, criteria that characterise creative ideas are: fluency, variety, innovativeness and usefulness. Creative criteria have been defined at a very generic level, and we have found very little indication of how in particular, the concept of innovativeness is operationalised. Trying to refine creative criteria in a specific domain however is very pertinent. Practically, it facilitates idea generation by allowing the selection, combination and elaboration of ideas that possess relevant characteristics. We explore thus creativity as innovativeness through a case study, the cybercartography project. The results of idea-generation sessions for this project provided insights into the definition of creative ideas. To refine the concept of innovativeness, we turn to the theory of aesthetic experiences based on the work of Dewey. Properties of aesthetic experiences are discussed in relation with the cybercartography project. The examination of aesthetic experiences led to the definition of innovativeness attributes as affect and dynamic inquiry.
