You Need to Have More Bad Ideas

I am in the middle of running a 5-day Innovation Champion Training with about 150 participants from India, Germany, Spain, France, South Africa, Pakistan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, etc. One of the concepts we teach in the training is the importance of creativity. We often struggle to come up with fresh ideas. We often tend to think that all the great ideas have been used up. Well, that’s not true. So, is there a way to find a good idea?
