Integrated Thinking and Polymaths?
More than ever, the agency world values integrated thinking; It needs creative polymaths
Think Da Vinci, Gallileo and Jobs, all polymaths or, ‘someone who has great and varied learning over complex bodies of knowledge…who can also solve complex tasks’.
Great creative strategists do this. With experience and vision beyond silos – not quantitative or qualitative approaches, digital or analogue, science or the arts – they bring together disparate ideas in new and exciting ways.
As ‘knowledge’ becomes cheap and accessible to all at the click of a button, inventive synthesis will be key. This skill will propel careers and push us up the value chain. Some find it innately but we can all improve.
