Possessed by Ideas
2008 (English)In: The Fourth Art of Management and Organization Conference.: Banff, Canada. Sept, 2008., 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
An idea pop into mind in different ways; they come into existence as a result of multiple infusion of impulses , and as a result of experience . Lately, in the literature of entrepreneurship, it is a lot of talk about “opportunity recognition” (Venkataraman, 2000), and many researchers also take that starting point for granted, as if ideas comes into existence, always as a result of conscious cognitive and controlled processes, following a logic pattern. By working with art and entrepreneurship processes (Scherdin, 2006; 2007), in practice, I know, that the opposite is perhaps even more important – to even become possessed by an idea. This paper takes that stance, and tries to develop a conceptual framework for “possessed by ideas”, how to cope and understand such a process and ultimately, how to gain advantage of such an understanding.
