In a world where competition is fierce and money talks, it’s nice to focus on other attributes that make businesses successful. Attributes like creativity, for instance. Creativity helps businesses set themselves apart from the pack, and could mean the difference between failure and success.
Every year, Fast Company (http://www.fastcompany.com/) publishes their list of the 100 most creative people in business. According to them, there was no shortage of mind-blowing candidates.
This year’s number one ranking creative business person went to Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com, a blog on the New York Times website that accurately predicted the outcome of the elections last fall. In Fast Company’s article, Silver talked about, “the limitations of data and the short-sighted, reflexive assumption that data can solve all problems. In other words, he talks about how creativity needs to be applied to find true meaning from our growing world of numbers.” –Robert Safian
