In Ancient Greece and Rome, many people believed that all creative ideas originated from the nine muses, deities who delivered inspiration to artists and were the source of all human creativity. While few people believe in these goddesses of creativity anymore, many still believe that creativity is an intangible force, possessed by only a select few people who choose to be artists, writers, or musicians. This week’s media presentation shows that the opposite is true; there are many different ways to be creative, and all people can generate creative ideas, whether they are laborers, artists, or businesspeople. For this week’s Shared Practice, consider the myths and popular misconceptions about creativity shown in this week’s media presentation. In your past, have you believed in these myths or perhaps applied them to yourself? Post by Day 3 your analysis of how these myths and misconceptions regarding creativity relate to your own past understandings of creativity or those you have encountered in others. Then, share how these myths and misconceptions have been present in current or past practices where you have worked or at a company with which you are familiar. How has this impacted your creativity? Provide examples. General Guidance: Your initial Shared Practice Discussion post will typically be 2–3 paragraphs in length as a general expectation/estimate. Refer to the rubric for the Week 1 Shared Practice Discussion for grading elements and criteria. Your instructor will use the rubric to assess your work.

As IT applications become more reutilized all across the board, one of the interesting features are the occasional employees who know more than the IT staff about some critical thing, often many of them. Communication between staff and IT then becomes much more complicated, because the balance of power between the two groups based on the dependence of staff on IT for help and support breaks down. While there is certainly nothing wrong with knowledge about technology it can lead to mixed messages, confused goals, feelings of lack of appreciation and lack of support, and generally less than effective maintenance of IT across-the-board. We certainly don’t want to discourage our staff from acquiring technical knowledge, but we also don’t want them to use that knowledge as a political weapon against IT’s control of IT. Or do we? Maybe it’s a good thing to have a level of stress between staff and IT if it serves to keep both groups on their toes and trying to outdo each other. At any rate, user support isn’t just looking after the least technological staff; increasingly, it’s also providing for the power users, and those who would be power users. Have you had any experience with this knowledge-based tension between staff and IT? Even if you haven’t, can you see how it could be a problem? What should we be doing about it?
