Thinking Creatively at Work: A Sourcebook moves away from linear and static notions of creativity to put forth a dynamic, comprehensive and contextualized understanding of the subject. It captures process and outcome dimensions, integrating multiple viewpoints from cognitive psychology, while strengthening intra-organizational contexts.

The book offers a graded, holistic training program that fills a gap felt by management educators and trainers. It encompasses the mandates of the deficit and barrier models of creativity training, addressing techniques, facilitators and inhibitors. The program ensures lasting changes in the individual's cognitive abilities and integrates these with his existing skills.

Redefining the problem provides the opportunity to look at the situation from different viewpoints...the initial way in which one looks at a problem is biased by past experience, learning, knowledge and habit, and redefinition permits alternative points of view to emerge, often leading to a holistic understanding...Useful guide to kick-start creativity.
