As part of a series of blog posts about Creative Problem Solving (a tool that everyone, not just inventors, can use) here is a major component called Creative Thinking.
A major crux of the creative thinking is the ability to diverge (an implementation of this is brainstorming) and then take those ideas and converge for the outcome you were hoping to achieve (granted this is only a part of t…
