Building the Innovate Playlist

music playlistOne of the things we want to do at Innovate NDSU Extension is to create a physical environment that encourages creativity and innovation. Research has shown that the sights, sounds and scents in a workplace can have a positive impact on the number of new products a company produces (Dul, Ceyan, The Impact of a Creativity-supporting Work Environment on a Firm's Product Innovation Performance, The Journal of Production Innovation Management, 2014).

At Innovation NDSU Extension, this starts with getting you out of your office, and giving you the time and space to think creatively. We are also paying close attention to the sights, scents and sounds that can help set an environment for innovation.

One of the key pieces will be our playlist. There is evidence that upbeat music can make people more cooperative, and team cooperation is important to the work we will be doing at Innovate NDSU Extension.

We'd like your help setting an upbeat playlist for the event. Submit your suggestions here. Feel free to submit as many songs as you want. You might hear one of your favorite upbeat songs when you join us for Innovate NDSU Extension, Monday, October 17, from 12:30 – 8 p.m. CT at the Wanzek Center for Scouting in Fargo, ND. The cost is $25 and you can register as part of your 2016 NDSU Extension/REC Conference registration.
