Creative Synergy

Creative: Characterized by originality and expressiveness; imaginative.

SynergyThe interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.

The most exciting and satisfying part of my career is best labeled "Creative Synergy," where the interaction between two or more people yields more creative results than any of the participants could deliver individually.

This is something that can't be forced, but is exciting when it happens.  I just experienced it again this afternoon at an adhoc meeting here at Sun's Customer Engineering Conference in Las Vegas.  Not a huge flash, not a ground-breaking innovation, but a creative bit of terminology that may make a big difference in how an important concept can be communicated.

And I'm not even going to tell you what we discovered.  I'll leave this to my colleague who'll blog about it soon.  Stay tuned!

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
