Creativity is more important because it is a very rare gift that spearhead ideas into reality. Efficiency is a functionality of the brain which enable it to execute ideas presicely in a minimum amount of time, while creativity is the dexterity of the mind which enable it to extract beneficial invention from it's wildest imagination. A creative mind produce efficient brain for bringing ideas into reality as once and idea is build up in the mind it will synchronize rapidly with the brain to make it real, sometimes ideas flashed like a lightening and disappeared immediately so you need efficient brain to trap it and quickly execute it just like a mathematician use to have a sleepless night for unsolved toturial, he dreamed of it and once the solution comes up he will wake up immediately to deliver the solution. Creativity is what generate efficiency there is that instinct of having recognition in creativity that motivate person to be the first that invented the design or the product.

I feel that the creativity and efficiency both are equally important. Because a man can something with the amalgamation of both. Creativity denoted the ideas that generated in mind of a human. But efficiency is necessary to implement this in the shortest time. So if a man can do something with the amalgamation of both who can invent some better than others.

For example in an organization a man who is Creative from the mind and develop a lot of ideas for the product, so if we use these ideas in the organisation with the amalgamation of other people which is effective in his work. Then new products can change the growth of the company.

Thank you all dear friends.

Good morning everyone.

I think creativity and efficiency both are important to survive nowadays.

What is creativity.?

Creativity is something that innovates our idea into reality while efficiency is that the person achieves with the help of our hard work and dedication. So I think both are the important tool to survive our life.

People who are born with creative mind have many creative skills they use their skills start up anything that he/she wants but the term efficiency is achieved with when the expert in his her work. And in any organisation requires both skills to develop our business.

So, I think both are important tools.

As in my point of view, both creativity and efficiency go hand in hand. First of all, understand what is creativity and efficiency. Making our imagination to the real world is creativity and by making some work done in less timme and in a proper manner is the efficiency.

So in industries, we required both kinds of work because not all are creative and efficient. So we both do the work together will better. For example, a person creates something with his imagination and if we want to implement it in an efficient way the product whichever is created will become successful. This can only be done if both come in action together.

Creativity and efficiency both are go together but we should apply our creativity with full be finishing way and perfectly in a efficient way.

Like if we take example of iim collage for MBA they have developed there course modules in such a way they students entertain all course and each and every class if we take small MBA college than may be we find that tere is unstructured way of developing course module so from there we can differentiate both of the mean our we take example of doing thing better and adopting of things in better way here we differentiate that we sholu not compromise in quality and their efficiency.

In my opinion creativity is most important than efficiency.

Because when we start doing something then pre plan creative mind suppose we goes market for purchasing product the shop is not clean product not suitable so we can't purchase (creative).

Then efficiency is also important but first us creative.

Both should form a part of each other. That is, creativity should contain efficiency and efficiency should also have some kind of creativity. Efficiency is more important. Everything involves cost be it monetary or in the form of time. A person, even if he is not creative, can do better in life if he is efficient. Though nowadays creativity is also required. Young minds have creative ideas. So, organisations also go for hiring youths. Their creative ideas have "efficiency" factor.

In my point of view, the efficiency is more important than creativity because, we know some people are gifted with creative mind in a particular field but the other who is not gifted with such quality is able to survive in today's world at the same time if he/she is not efficient at his work then he/she will definitely not going survive and will get fired.

As per my thinking point of view, efficiency is rather more important than the creative skills. A person can innovate new things by the use of him superficial mind but it's worthless without efficiency. The point creativity itself goes under efficiency. By taking an example if I say that plant is very efficient in production, that means there must some creativity would be there in that plant. So, the most important thing that we have to consider is efficiency, all other things can be adjusted by it.

According to me, creativity is far more important than efficiency because when there is creativity, there will be a chance of improving the efficiency of the system. I will try to elaborate on it with an example suppose, you are an owner of an organisation and the organization is running for more than 5-6 years, every day producing the same product. So, you will surely try to increase the profit of the organisation by cutting down the rate of producing per unit which will require a new method of producing the product. There comes a role of creativity, getting a new idea to increase the profit will definitely help you to be creative and that's what creativity is all about.

Hello friends,

Creativity and efficency both are important traits. Our personal as well as professional success depends upon both. Choosing one above the another depends upon situation to situation. Creativity becomes more important when it comes to innovation. New idea's, developing something new requires creativity first. It's okay to have less efficency at initial stages. But as the time goes, we need to start improving thereby increasing our efficency level. Again to increase our efficiency, it does require creativity, new techniques to learn, adapt and improve our work.

Thus both creativity and efficency are inter related with each other.

Creativity, of course, It has always been creativity which governs success. Let's look into our surroundings, we will find more number of efficient people than creative ones. But eventually, the creative ones turn to outshine others. I believe that even a creative person can turn out to be efficient in certain circumstances but vice versa would be something rare to find.

Both qualities are equally important since it is depending on the situation. For example, if you are in a job profession of fashion designing, animation, startups then it creates a lot of difference. At the same time efficiency is needed when we have to finish the given work in a fixed time period maintaining both quality & quantity. This is what happening in manufacturing industries today.

Let me start discussion on this very interesting topic "which is more important creativity or efficiency". Fom my point, I think the creativity is more important than efficiency. Because if a person, student, entrepreneur etc is creative, He/she can think out of box and come with a great idea. But it does not need to be very efficient to work on that idea. He/She can increase the man labour to work on that idea to complete it in given span of time.

Creativity is more important as the results regarding creativity can be extraordinary. Efficiency can be increased after creativity but efficiency can only be increased upto a certain limit if there is no creativity. Sometimes, thinking something out of the box leads to unexceptional results.

Hi, Today topic is about whether creativity is important or efficiency.

In my view, I must say creativity is more important. Because. Through creativity, we can improve our technology. As we all know. That new technology brings the best efficiency and also helps in improving productivity.

The current trend is Everyone wants to achieve good success in less period of time.

So, If we will consider time, productivity, and other factors then Creativity has more importance than efficiency.

Through creativity, we can achieve efficiency, but without. Creativity is impossible with respect to time.

Thank you.

Hello, friends, my name is Mayank.

In my opinion, creativity is more important than efficiency I would explain it like creativity comes first followed by efficiency.

For instance, first one imagine something (that's what creativity is) that you do something (that you imagined) till you get efficient in that and then again you start using your creativity to improve it. So you understand how creativity efficiency and then again creativity. Efficiency can be improved by creativity whereas act me vise versa is not possible.
