Church, Multi-site

Creativity in Constraints

Posted January 25, 2010

I spent a few days this past week in Dallas at Leadership Network for a Multi-Site Innovation Lab. It was a great time away working through Multi-Site strategy with the team at Harvest Church. One of the exercises we went through involved role playing a few made up scenarios in how a church would respond to different constraints (that aren’t relevant to this post). One of the challenges with the exercise was ironically the lack of constraints.

Creativity and innovation has always come out of a position to work around roadblocks; to overcome that which we’re told we can’t really do. The challenge in any system is the balance between flexibility and control. If your system is too constrictive, your people will innovate to work around it. If it’s too flexible, well, you end up with people pulling in too many directions.

How balanced is your system?
