Preface to 101 Creative Problem Solving Techniques

Business and their managers, professional staff, team leaders and other employees are confronted with a host of challenges as they approach the twenty-first century.

Change is occurring at an accelerating rate. The number of competitors is increasing dramatically. Business is globalizing. New technology is being introduced at a rapid pace. The workforce is increasingly diverse.

There is a scarcity of certain resources, including highly skilled workers. There is a transformation occurring from an industrial to a knowledge-based society. Economic and market conditions are increasingly unstable, especially on a global basis.

Constituents are more demanding. And finally, the entire business environment is becoming more complex. To meet these challenges and the opportunities they create, businesses are embracing creative problem solving and innovation as never before.

To achieve effective and efficient levels of creative problem solving and innovation which results, an organization must improve the creativity of its workgroups and individuals, and it must create the right kind of organizational culture which will turn that creativity into innovation.

One of the key ways in which individuals and groups can improve their creativity is through learning creativity processes, techniques that take advantage of innate intuitive and creative abilities, techniques that channel these abilities to create new or enhanced products or services, or create more effective and efficient organizational processes.

This book describes the basic creative problem solving (CPS) model and then describes 101 techniques for unleashing individual and group creativity. These techniques follow the CPS model.

Managers, professionals, team leaders, and any other employee interested in improving his or her job performance or that of the workgroup, or for that matter, the entire company, will find this book beneficial. This book is readily useable in-company training programs.

Organizational creativity training programs have grown rapidly in recent months, and this book is designed to meet the needs of such programs.
