Freshly squeezed: how to re-energize creative juices at the enterprise-level

It's time for marketers to rethink creativity if they want to succeed...

Creativity is the bedrock of great marketing – but as any organization grows, so do the factors that inhibit creativity. Creatives just want to be creative – to do that, they need freedom to create, rather than spending valuable brain power on cumbersome tasks that limit their potential.

So, how can enterprise-level organizations and global agencies with multiple teams spread globally foster an environment that empowers creatives and cultivates rapid idea generation, without over processing to the point that squeezes the ability for serendipitous ideas to pop up from anywhere?

Regardless of which industry or sector they operate in, big companies often share the same challenges. From meetings that stretch across time-zones to dense, multi-layered decision-making processes, and all the different project steps in between, the enterprise is a mammoth beast.
