Creativity is as much defined by the problem as by the capacity of the individual to connect things to resolve that problem in new and sometimes unexpected ways.

"Digital Master
is a series of guidebooks (28 + books) to perceive the multi-faceted impact digital is making to the businesses and society, help forward-thinking organizations navigate through the journey in a systematic way, and avoid “rogue digital.” 

It perceives the emergent trends of digital leadership, provides advice on how to run a digital organization to unleash its full potential and improve agility, maturity, and provide insight about Change Management. It also instructs the digital workforce on how to shape a game-changing digital mindset and build the right set of digital capabilities to compete for the future. Here is a set of “Unexpected” quotes in “Digital Master.

Come out with fresh ideas or solutions that we can be provocative, passionate (really intrinsically motivated) about, and courageous enough to implement or execute in new and unexpected ways.

The difference between positive and negative is perception and choice. Learn to abide by nature and let the positive dominate the negative. Incidentally, a single unexpected success suddenly triggers a chain of positive thought processes. A good positive chain of thoughts followed by positive actions brought good results.

To build dynamic capabilities such as changeability, information visualization helps to gain fresh and broader views, and discover unexpected connections in a rich business environment, be alert to identify blind spots, be flexible to adjust the strategic planning, be empathetic to engage employees, and be progressive to keep tuning processes which underpin business capabilities.

Decisions can have Unexpected & Unintended consequences. The strongest impediment to decision making is fear. Fear of making the wrong choice, if you make a bad decision or things just turn out badly.

Digital leaders and professionals must have resilient mindsets in order to adapt to the continuous digital disruptions or unexpected setbacks either in career or personal life. It's the ability to respond to change, dare to be creative when facing difficulties, to recover quickly from setbacks, as well as the capacity to respond to the unexpected in a way that increases gain or minimizes loss.

Creativity is a person’s innate ability to create novel ideas. Creativity is as much defined by the problem as by the capacity of the individual to connect things to resolve that problem in new and sometimes unexpected ways.

Change Management is not necessarily about innovation and an organization has to carefully inventory what is working and what it wants to change. It must also consider not only the intended changes but what could be the unintended changes. Substantial innovations also sometimes lead to unexpected organizational changes, sometimes to handle success and sometimes to build on that success.

The corporate board leaders have to keep evolving and gaining fresh views, leverage information for discovering unexpected connections between the business and its rich environment, inspire and build the right set of digital principles and policies to catalyze changes, enforce governance discipline, and shape the brighter future of their company cohesively.
