Does conformity allow for GIS creativity?
August 15, 2014  by Matt Sheehan

 

Yikes, now that is a question: does conformity allow for GIS creativity?

But it is worth pondering. We encourage our children to think for themselves, to be creative, be individual thinkers. And yet we live in a world where one is expected to conform. In both action and thought.

Conform in action and thought?

In work we concern ourselves with pleasing bosses, not rocking the boat, remaining within organizational constraints. Ok, that is maybe an overstatement. But we are first and foremost concerned with conformity, not moving out of step. That is not all bad. But where does that leave creativity and individual thinking?
