Abstract

The drama “Being Innovative”—Act 1, Scene 4

The board member of POLYM Inc. Alexander H. and decision-maker John G. sit in the Alexander H.’s office.

POLYM Inc. Alexander H.: The concept that you develop in your department, I like it a lot. This is exactly what our company needs now—new ideas so that we can continue to develop and grow. This idea has potential, I can feel it. I always keep wondering how some people come up with such ideas. Anyway, we seem to get quite a few thing right in our organization. It fascinates me to see again and again how something is created virtually from scratch, from nothing. It hasn’t been Thomas E.’s job to come up with this idea. Do you have an idea what exactly makes them invent?
