The art of inventing solutions

We often fall into the trap of thinking that being creative means creating art. Painters, sculptors, composers are not the only ones that can create. Solving problems in an organization, finding new solutions also involves our creative capacity, and we can all be more creative.

Creativity is a key feature of development. Success in a highly dynamic market is largely determined by the capacity to innovate.
