Paradigms can be useful tools. Paradigms can help us navigate our day-to-day lives and make sense of the data and information that can overload us on a daily basis. In any organization, paradigms help leaders determine goals based on past experience and an understanding of what is likely to happen in the future. But what can we do when unexpected opportunities or unforeseen challenges arise? Can assumptions or perceptions shared by individuals within the organization prevent them from embracing a new paradigm or solving problems creatively?
Yes. Paradigms inhibit our ability to innovate and create if we don't look at the larger picture and ask questions. Through stories and examples Joel Barker demonstrates how thinking differently is necessary for us to identify new ideas and opportunities. Challenging accepted paradigms requires detachment from prevailing wisdom, courage to challenge conventional thinking, and the skills to follow through with out-of-the-box thinking. From this, individuals help organizations establish new paradigms that lead to new products and processes that attain the goals they've set out to achieve.
