Be outside of the box! Analyze, Evaluate, Create (vs Remember, Understand, Apply)

We combine two popular ideas. 1. “Think outside of the box”used to expand our way of thinking to explore different perspectives. It was a popular concept during our MIT courses in the 70s. We expanded this idea to “Be outside of the box”. This idea is to go beyond thinking and be an instrument of action and change outside your comfort zone. 2. Incorporate the use of the top of Blooms’ Taxonomy in our learning initiatives. Education should move from “Remember, Understand, and Apply” to more “Analyze, Evaluate, and Create”. 

New management, leadership, and technology realities require people with TECHKnowledge who can combine organization and management skills with emerging technologies to create new products and services. It is not enough to think outside of the box. We need to be outside of the box to assess risks, explore new opportunities, and take creative actions. 

What is your organization doing to improve training, education, performance, and systems to cope with today’s global and local challenges? Why or why not these ideas could be useful in your organization?
