Last modified Nov 5, 2014

The modern workplace in postindustrial economies is characterized by teamwork and complex projects/tasks. Creativity and innovation are perceived as key success factors in a globalized, highly dynamic market environment.

In order to leverage creative potential of employees, several different creativity techniques have been proposed in the past (e.g. 6 Thinking Hats, Design Thinking, Creative Problem Solving Process, Brainstorming and many more).
