It takes a creative person to consider starting a business. The more committed to creativity and innovation a person is, the more likely they are to use play strategies to solve problems. Mel Lim explores the challenges of entrepreneurship and the ways ideas are cultivated, incubated, and allowed to grow. What are the benefits and pitfalls of approaches such as rapid prototyping? Can businesses really rush the creative process and be assured of delivering their best work and growing in the right direction? Or should ideas be allowed to simmer and brew into fullness?
