Creative problem solving (CPS) is a six-step process designed to help people systematically resolve nonroutine, ambiguous types of problems. Because most organizational problems tend to be nonroutine, skill in using CPS process can confer a significant competitive advantage. Creative Problem Solving gives training managers the information they need to develop and teach a course on CPS. VanGundy provides an overview of the process, elements of the creative climate needed to foster CPS and innovative thinking, creative thinking exercises designed to illustrate specific CPS principles, and easy-to-follow descriptions of proven idea-generated methods.

This book includes 50 situations that present interesting opportunities and challenges to stimulate students' creative and critical thinking. The brief, practical, everyday situations provide motivating starting points for practicing Creative Problem Solving with groups of many ages. These problems were designed to represent a variety of different tasks or challenges in an open-ended, invitational format that we describe informally as a "Messy Situation." These Messy Situations, like many of life's everyday opportunities and challenges, take a variety of forms, sizes, and shapes. They might concern a variety of situations in which people find themselves day in and day out. Thus, some of the Messy Situations in this book are people tasks (that is, situations involving the interactions or relationships among people). Others are planning tasks (that is, concerning more effective ways of organizing or managing a situation), and yet others are product tasks (that is, challenges that call for designing, inventing, or producing a new product of some kind). Each of these one-page problems can help students learn and apply CPS components, stages, and tools in an engaging and enjoyable way. Choose the problems that are best suited to your group's interests and needs. The challenges in Practice Problems for Creative Problem Solving and several helpful worksheets are reproducible for classroom use.

What this book can do for you: You support climate protection, receive compact information and checklists from experts (overview and press reviews in the book preview) as well as advice proven in practice, which leads step by step to success - also thanks to add-on. Because every profession, every company, every workplace offers a multitude of challenges every day, which have to be overcome in order to be successful. But often the solutions are sought within the existing system and therefore creative solutions are not even found. The more flexible and open-minded people are able to react to sudden changes, the more creative the solutions will be. This book shows how to use one's own creativity and that of the whole team to find the best and most creative solutions to problems that arise. We give you the best possible help on the topics of career, finance, management, personnel work and life assistance. For this purpose, we gather in each book the best experts in their field as authors - detailed biographies in the book - , who give a comprehensive overview of the topic and additionally offer you success planner workbooks in printed form. Our guidebooks are aimed primarily at beginners. Readers who are looking for more in-depth information can get it for free as an add-on with individual content in German and English as desired. This concept is made possible by a particularly efficient, innovative digital process and Deep Learning, AI systems that use neural networks in translation. Moreover, we give at least 5 percent of our proceeds from book sales to social and sustainable projects. For example, we endow scholarships or support innovative ideas as well as climate protection initiatives and in some cases also receive government funding for this. With our translations from German into English we improve the quality of neural machine learning and thus contribute to international understanding.

You are creative. No doubt about it. But you are not aware of it. Your creative potentials are dormant, waiting to be aroused from deep slumber. This book aims just at that objective by answering an array of questions like: What is creativity? Why is it dormant? How to unlock it? How do we define a problem? How to find a useful solution to a problem? And so on. All that it requires to answer such questions is: DESIRE and WILL. We have a much greater thinking capacity than we ever use. While unfolding this truth, this book reveals the strategies to remove roadblocks and negativity that stunts the growth of the imaginative faculty. After getting the feel of release, discussions lead to ways and means of developing creativity, i.e. unique ability to solve problems in an innovative way. Efforts are also made to convince the readers that creativity can be applied each day to many aspects of our everyday life by following the leads. If you desire to ignite the latent spark in your mind, and cherish to be creative, this book is for you.
