Problem solving and creative thinking

Guidance on how to develop your problem solving and creative thinking skills

Having good, strong problem solving skills can make a huge difference to your career. Problems are at the center of what many people do at work every day.

Creative thinking is a way of looking at problems or situations from a fresh perspective and can be stimulated both by an unstructured process such as brainstorming, and by a structured process such as lateral thinking.
