Creative Problem Solving

A problem is a gap between the current state and a desired state. Every problem has two common elements: an objective and obstacle(s). If there were no obstacle, there wouldn’t be a problem; it would be an easy path to achieving your objective. Creativity is the process of generating new possibilities or alternatives; the ability to view things in a different way or from a new perspective. Creative problem solving means using techniques that increase the number and variety of ideas in order to generate the best possible solution to the problem.
