Brainstorming – collaboration feeds innovation?

Um, nope.

At least if you believe Picasso (“Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.”),psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Gregory Feist (how do you argue with people with names like that?), Roy Williams from the MondayMorningMemo (this newsletter continually bends my mind, in a good way), Susan Cain in the New York Times, or John Steinbeck (“the group never invents anything.”).

How much of corporate America works in teams, in offices without walls, for managers who prize people skills above all? Probably a lot. Lone geniuses are out. Collaboration is in.

Or is it? Let us know your take on here or at our twitter.
