Want a new set of ideas in your work? Author Mike Michalowicz writes about a variety of tips for innovation on Open Forum. Here are just a few:

Take it to the masses. If there is something that you want to get off your chest or you want to get some feedback from peers, send it out to the masses online. Don’t put your innovative ideas on there, but just offer general information and seek feedback. You can post it on chat boards, in trade groups or even blog about it. A dialogue will likely get started that will get you thinking and working through the possibilities.
