About What is "Creative Strategy?"
The term “creative strategy” is generally used in two different contexts. In some instances, it is applied to the topic of developing a strategy specifically for a creative field – usually with respect to advertising or marketing communications. Other times, it is used to describe an overall business strategy that is creative in nature or, more specifically, that will result in some type of unique and emotionally important output. The book, Creative Strategy Generation wholly embraces the latter of these definitions; and here’s the reason why, as told by its author, Bob Caporale:
“In the context of the term “creative strategy,” when we use the word “creative” as an attributive noun rather than as an adjective, it indicates that we’re developing a strategy for one function (usually marketing) that is uniquely creative above all others. Yes, marketing is a creative function – but, then again, so is engineering, sales, operations, or just about any other discipline that invariably contributes to the overall success of a business. In this way, it’s not the activities of any singular “creative” department or function that we should be focusing on but, rather, the entire holistic process of achieving some overall business objective in a new and creative way.”
