Creativity and Innovation in Micro Enterprises
“Design has been defined as a transformation of existing conditions. Design thinking is process. A process that is optimised for certain things for really building up what might be as opposed to breaking down what is. if you can visualise it as a set of tools or a problem solving approach that’s not better than analytic thinking its just optimised for certain conditions of real uncertainty”.
Creativity and Innovation in Micro Enterprises, the CIME project provides micro-enterprises across South-East Ireland access to leading-edge development and training programmes designed to encourage creativity and innovative thinking within their organisations.
The overall aim of CIME is to help micro – small, medium enterprises to think in a more creative and innovative way in order to survive in the current challenging economic climate. To help companies to become more efficient and effective in managing their business and explore new opportunities and new ways of doing business; respond to new technologies and trends as they emerge; and adapt to changing market conditions.

After you’ve watched an innovation video what can you do next? How can you apply what you’ve learned or been inspired to do…and keep learning and being inspired? You can watch more videos or read more on the topic but consider this. We learn most through reflective action, through applying the knowledge we’ve gained, through experiencing and making it real for use. What can you do or take action on?
This Innovation Videos website is a resources to help you stay fresh, on the cutting edge, and up to date with your own learning and personal and professional development. The ability and skill to innovate is becoming more important than ever due to the rapid pace of change in our world. You may not have had a class on “innovation” in school or at your work so it is up to you to gain the knowledge, attitude, mindset, and skill that will allow you to adapt and respond to change with innovation. A first step is to read or watch videos on this site to get inspired and learn ways you can be more innovative. Then, take what you are learning and apply it to your own life and work. Take on an innovative project to create and develop something new that can have an impact, something you may not have ever done before. Perhaps you will get an idea from an innovation video on our site.
After learning on your own look to be a part of a leadership program, workshop, course, or seminar. Join a group or even create a startup with some partners. Involve other people in learning and doing innovation with you. Keep reading and keep listening because there is always opportunity to learn new methods since new technologies are being introduced all the time. When you are just working on your computer, have a video playing to listen and learn. See if you can watch (or at least listen to) a different innovation video everyday to keep developing your knowledge base and leadership skills. But remember…you will need to do something. Take action!
