, the free dictionary. Creativity (or "creativeness") is a mental process involving the generation of new ideas or concepts , or new associations between existing ideas or concepts. From a scientific point of view, the products of creative thought (sometimes referred to as divergent thought ) are usually considered to have both originality and appropriateness. An alternative, more everyday conception of creativity is that it is simply the act of making something new. Although intuitively a simple phenomenon, it is in fact quite complex. It has been studied from the perspectives of behavioural psychology social psychology psychometrics cognitive science ... business , and management , among others. The studies have covered everyday creativity, exceptional creativity and even artificial creativity . Unlike many phenomena in science, there is no single, authoritative perspective or definition of creativity. Unlike many phenomena in psychology, there is no standardized measurement technique. Creativity has been attributed variously to divine intervention cognitive processes, the

Dorye Roettger "As the season of believing seems to wind down let me gently remind you that many dreams still wait in the wings. Many authentic sparks must be fanned before passion performs her perfect work in you. Throw another log on the fire." Sarah Ban Breathnach "I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it." Pablo Picasso "To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly."

What is Creativity?
By Linda Naiman I define creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing. Innovation is the production or implementation of an idea. If you have ideas, but don't act on them, you are imaginative but not creative.

A. A. Milne One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.
Abraham Maslow
The key question isn't "What fosters creativity?" But it is why in God's name isn't everyone creative? Where was the human potential lost? How was it crippled? I think therefore a good question might be not why do people create? But why do people not create or innovate? We have got to abandon that sense of amazement in the face of creativity, as if it were a miracle if anybody created anything.
Albert Einstein
You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.
Albert Einstein
Technological change is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

Creativity is a type of learning process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.

How Is Your Climate for Innovation? By Charles W. Prather, Ph.D. Think back over your career to the work situation that provided the most satisfying working environment for you (hopefully it is your current job). Now, contrast that one to the opposite - the one that provided the least satisfying working environment. You are probably instantly able to see that your personal enthusiasm and the level of your innovativeness paralleled the work environment. What dimensions of the environment do you think were most important? If you wanted to improve the environment for innovation, what specifically would you do? Leaders struggle with these questions. In our work with organizations, we find that the climate for innovation is crucial, poorly understood,  and all but ignored when thoughts turn to improving the level of innovation.  When leaders wish to improve the climate, many times they will just shotgun it - doing something that is poorly thought out, or doing something that makes the situation worse.  There is a better way - first understand the system and get the data, then decide what to do. Based on the pioneering work of Goran Ekvall in Sweden some 20 years ago, it is now possible to quantify the climate for innovation.  Ekvall's work has been further refined and validated by Scott Isaksen and others at the Center for Creative studies at SUNY-Buffalo, who have defined nine dimensions of the climate for innovation.  These nine dimensions are:

Creativity, Innovation and Problem Solving
Some Guidelines with Linked Historical Examples
TRUE Creativity and Innovation consists of
what everyone else has seen,
what no one else has thought, and
what no one else has dared!"


The customer is always your first and most important creative challenge. Listen! Try to see the customers problems and needs from his point of view. Restate the problem and the customers needs in his terms and iterate until a consensus is reached. Ask not only what his problems are, but what special methods or tools he is presently using to solve them. Work together with or in the place of the end user or customer. Use fictitious product descriptions to stimulate ideas and discussion. Remember that effective market research and sales strategy requires just as much creativity, enthusiasm and perfection as does product development. IMPORTANCE OF ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS AND
The problem as first stated is rarely the true problem. Ask at least five times. Always restate the problem as many ways as you can; change the wording, take different viewpoints, try it in graphical form.

How To Be Creative:
[NB: PDF Version here.]
So you want to be more creative, in art, in business, whatever. Here are some tips that have worked for me over the years:
1. Ignore everybody. 2. The idea doesn't have to be big. It just has to be yours. 3. Put the hours in. 4. If your biz plan depends on you suddenly being "discovered" by some big shot, your plan will probably fail. 5. You are responsible for your own experience. 6. Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. 7. Keep your day job. 8. Companies that squelch creativity can no longer compete with companies that champion creativity. 9. Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb. 10. The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props. 11. Don't try to stand out from the crowd; avoid crowds altogether. 12. If you accept the pain, it cannot hurt you. 13. Never compare your inside with somebody else's outside. 14. Dying young is overrated.
