Y Ltd Managing Director Gordon Pace asks whether it’s time for Malta to have its own Ministry for Creativity given how successful entities tend to be the most creative ones.

“Time and again we witness happenings which show that creativity is key to success,” Mr Pace says adding that “when one looks closely at successful businesses or projects, at any level, it’s easy to note that one common factor is creativity.”

He speaks of the importance of formally recognising creativity as an area which truly helps business leaders thrive.

“It’s not about re-inventing the wheel,” he says.

Indeed he suggests that the concept of creative thinking “should also be applied to a nation’s leadership”, and feels that having its own dedicated Ministry, hence formalising it, is one way of progressing.

Innovative people tend to solve problems more effectively. Consequently, applying creative thinking to everyday aspects such as traffic management or sustainable tourism or even parking could lead to some interesting solutions, the Managing Director believes.

If what we have and what we are doing is not working, then the only solution is to think outside the box.

“At the end of the day, one can’t expect a different result if the same formula is used over and over again. Some of the best ideas might just be around the corner,” Mr Pace concludes.
