Love 'em or hate 'em, processes exist for a reason. 

Yes, they may feel restrictive and ho-hum at times, but I think we can all agree that sound processes help organizations -- particularly agencies -- stay on track and ensure sustainability, scalability, and profitability. 

But how do you operate in a process-driven ecosystem, while also ensuring you're infusing the right amount of creativity in your work at the right time? Moreover, is there such a thing as too much innovation?

These are the questions we attempted to answer for this week's episode. And along the way, Marcella, Jessie-Lee, and I fell face-first into an interesting discussion (see: "rant") about the misconceptions of how creative professionals operate and create. 

Enjoy!
