Chances are the most important tasks require you to work with others—and the success of those endeavors depends on the effectiveness of your collaboration. According to management expert Leigh Thompson, collaboration that is conscious, planned, and focused on generating new ideas builds excitement and produces what she calls a “creative conspiracy.” Teams that conspire to organize themselves, motivate one another, and combine their talents to meet creative challenges are the hallmark of the most successful organizations. In this book, Thompson reveals the keys to the kind of collaboration that allows teams to reach their full creative potential and maximize their results. She also reveals a host of surprising findings; for example: • Left to their own devices, teams are less creative than individuals • Providing “rules” to teams actually increases inventiveness • Striving for quality results in less creativity than striving for quantity • Fluctuating membership enhances a team’s innovation • Most leaders cannot articulate the four basic rules of brainstorming Thompson combines broad-ranging research with real-life examples to offer strategies and practices designed to help teams and their leaders capitalize on what actually works when it comes to creative collaboration. Creative Conspiracy challenges managers to adopt an unconventional approach to leading teams that, done right, will lead to the creative success of every team—and every organization.

    Excellent book on brainstorming and team. It completely destroys most of our experiences with brainstorming and gives really practical tools to help get the best ideas and engage a team of people. A couple really helpful insights: 1. Whatever size you think the team needs to be -- cut that number in half! We tend to have too many people in the room. 2. Only have the people in the room who need to be in the room! 3. We get the best ideas when we have a LOT of ideas. Most leaders stifle ideas -- she Excellent book on brainstorming and team.

We get the best ideas when we have a LOT of ideas. Most leaders stifle ideas -- she tells you how we do this and . . . she's right. 4. Have people share their ideas in writing rather than verbally. Again, this book if filled with practical ideas and insights. If you lead a team, this is must read.

    It has a lot of advice and processes that I’ll use. The delivery was boring. I’ll use it as a reference tool.

    I had high hopes for this book based on the description and subject, but the farther I got into it, the more it let me down. The topic is interesting and intriguing, but I have concluded that the entire premise is based on academic research and lacks real-life experience on the part of the writer. What led me to this conclusion was both her idealized ideas of how real teams work and also her academic frame of reference when it comes to business in general. For example, throughout the book she co I had high hopes for this book based on the description and subject, but the farther I got into it, the more it let me down. The topic is interesting and intriguing, but I have concluded that the entire premise is based on academic research and lacks real-life experience on the part of the writer. What led me to this conclusion was both her idealized ideas of how real teams work and also her academic frame of reference when it comes to business in general. For example, throughout the book she constructs scenarios to illustrate concepts that she is talking about. Without exception, these scenarios revolve around activities that are completely foreign to anyone who has not attended graduate school. That aside, I also felt that she failed to define exactly what the "creative conspiracy" was up front and I was left to piece it together based on the various topics she discussed and examples she gave. In the end, I was left with the impression that I almost learned something interesting...but not quite.

    Main point is that groups are less creative then individuals. After you learn that I didn't see any other useful information rising out of this so stopped reading after a few chapters.
