Caramba!! Pancho Villa and the Mexican Innovation Hat
Keywords:CERN IdeaSquare, creativity, innovation process
At IdeaSquare and CERN, we are constantly on the look-out for sources of inspiration to make our science better and to make orders-of-magnitude jumps in the process, as well. This time around, we take a closer look at Pancho Villa and his Mexican Hat and see how that could explain the relationship between creativity vs. structure in the innovation process.
