Fast Company recently published its 2010 list of the most creative people in business. Quite an interesting list of names, some familiar and some not so familiar. Here is the top 10:
- Lady Gaga, pop artist
- Eddy Cue, Apple Interest Services
- Elizabeth Warren, consumer advocate
- Shiro Nakamura, Nissan
- Ryan Murphy, creator, producer of Glee
- Steve Burd, Safeway
- Chris Anderson, TED conferences
- Hannah Jones, Nike
- James Cameron, filmmaker
- Qi Lu, Microsoft
With 90 others names on the list, a few got left off that I’d suggest adding:
- From government, Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education, for his initiative to improve education systems by rewarding excellence.
- From entertainment, Steve Levitan, co-creator and executive producer of Modern Family, the funniest show on television.
- From business, Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford, who restored hope that American car companies can succeed.
Creativity is often defined as the ability to create. To create is to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes. Based on these definitions, whom do you admire for their creativity?
