ICChange Executive Jessica Hogan in HEROES Magazine

May 14, 2015

It’s National Nursing Week in Canada from May 11 to 17th and there’s no better time for us to acknowledge the tremendous positive impact that nurses and other frontline care workers have around the world. ICChange is lucky to have several team members and CHANGEmakers with backgrounds in nursing working on solving big problems and improving patients’ outcomes in the communities we work in.

One of these nurses is our very own Jessica Hogan. Jess has been an integral part of the ICChange team for many years, working on the CeraMaji and Kenya Trauma and Injury initiatives. Her interest is in analyzing the positive impact that transport medicine can have on a health system. If you’re interested in seeing the reach of an idea like this, check out Jess on page 13 of this month’s HEROES Magazine and read on to pages 14 and 15 to see a great graphic demonstrating how transport medicine enables the Stollery Children’s Hospital to serve children across all of Western Canada.

What is the Greatest Enemy of Creativity?

March 20, 2015

Creativity, Innovation, Transformation.

All different words for getting at the same idea – something isn’t working and there has to be a better way. The ICChange Method depends on his type of thinking for building new models and answers to expressed needs. Challenging the status quo is never easy and there are plenty of barriers to overcome when you have to convince yourself, your team, and each stakeholder that it’s time to look at a problem and its solutions differently.

Envato, an Australian startup, has created a community of creative people that know this process well and they were at SXSW asking attendees the question, “What is the Greatest Enemy of Creativity?”.

Abraam and Abdullah’s answers are featured in the video Envato produced, so check it out and comment with your answer!
