Creative Problem Solving

Creative problem solving is a method of approaching change within the organization. It usually involves a team approach, because people within the workplace are empowered to participate in the change process when looking for creative solutions. An effective organization recognizes that its own personnel often hold the keys to innovation within themselves and only need the right outlet to share their experience based ideas.

Creative problem solving is a method of finding innovative approaches for problem resolution. The problem may be any of a number of situations or needs. For example, the problem may be stated in terms of the need to resolve interdepartmental conflict which is reducing efficiency. On the other hand, the problem may be a need for a product innovation in order to improve the company's competitive standing within its industry.

No matter what the problem or need the business may be addressing, creative ideas and fresh approaches can often make the difference between a successful company and one that is unable to remain efficient and competitive. It also offers a way to introduce change into an organization that minimizes the normal fear that usually accompanies change. The creative problem solving process becomes a change agent that can turn resistance into action.
