Summary
CEOs around the world rank creativity as the most desirable leadership quality of the future. US employers rate innovation and problem solving as in-demand skills for workers and report a shortage of job candidates that measure up. Yet, our schools are increasingly turning into educational environments that stymie creativity - leaving children cut off from their natural impulses and boxed in by expectations. In Swarm Intelligence, Rolling argues that we need to turn our classrooms - and workplaces - into crucibles for collective creativity. Drawing on cutting-edge research in the realms of biological swarm theory, systems theory, and complexity theory and writing in an accessible narrative style, Rolling shows why working in groups makes us both smarter and more creative, and how we can put these principles in practice at the earliest stages of life, to develop the next generation of capable leaders. He argues that this model, rather than the pursuit of individual achievement, promises the greatest potential for the next generation, both as learners and as a nation
