A CLIP-ON RECYCLE BIN

A Clip-On Recycle Bin

  • Introduction

Waste management is one of the major challenges facing workplace today. With a rapid growing population, the world is faced with a problem of managing millions of tons of waste generated daily from home, office, industries, farms, and other areas (Zibarras, Judson, & Barnes, 2012). Research in waste management has recommended recycling as one of the strategies to help manage waste. Recycling simply implies making use of waste and using it for another function (Carrico & Riemer, 2011; Butterworth & McDowall, 2012). Recycling involves finding an innovative strategy to make use of something that could have gone to waste. Recycling is helping to prolong the lifecycle of materials and helping to save resources (Butterworth & McDowall, 2012). For example, a printing paper that is printed on one side is likely to be disposed to the bin after use. However, it can be printed on the other side for any information that require to be pinned on the notice board. The previously printed site will be pinned against the notice board and the newly printed side is visible to the target audience.

Assessment Description
During this subject so far, you have been exposed to various theories about innovation and
creativity. Being able to apply these concepts in a practical manner is a key outcome of this
course.
Your task is to identify a work-related problem you are currently experiencing at work or
choose one below as a team. Develop new solutions by using techniques, concepts and
theories discussed during the lectures. Feel free to research further to identify tools that
will be most suitable for you. Here are some suggestions: Fishbone diagrams, How to
statements or levels of abstraction. The only problem is you are very limited with
resources you can use. You have many paper clips, some paper (different sizes), and
coloured pens and a coat hanger.
Some possible work problems:
1. How to speed up marking for MBA613
2. How to encourage people more to recycle in the office
3. How to reduce waiting time in a busy café
4. How to improve a toaster?
5. How to arrange prams during the very busy zoo showtimes.

Step 1: You are required to form teams of 4 – 5. Let your lecturer know who you would like to
work with. (This same team will also work together for the next assignment and will play the
Harvard Power and Conflict Simulation together. )

Each team member should measure their creativity from

Step 2: Organise a “Genius Hour” with your team and discuss what will you do for this project?
What will be your approach? Your creativity test results, your fears, passions, ideas etc. Some
tools you can use include (but not limited to) Brainstorming, Mindmapping, Storyboarding,
Visualisation…(Week 2)
Step 3: Every week try to create and add to your team’s “creativity pool” (Week 1 to 4) During the
lectures you were given some tools to force you for creative thinking. You may also want to do
some further research and use any tool you like such as Synectic Pinball Machine, Six Thinking
Hats or Checklists. Choose the best idea but do not waste the rest of the ideas – can these ideas
be recycled somewhere?
Step 4: Write a report together about your creative journey. Make sure you include all the theory,
concepts, tools … you have used. This is a reflective essay which requires you and your team to
reflect on your creative journey. Do not forget to integrate theoretical concepts. MBA613: A CLIP-ON RECYCLE BIN.
