The Creative Problem-Solving

"Out-of-the-Box” Problem-Solving Every mind has a certain box, some smaller, some bigger. the commonality is that "the box" tends to be what people with certain experience in the topic can identify as being "commonly known." It can also mean "solutions/answers" they have heard before. It is usually about how to fix problems via conventional ways. On the opposite, Out-of-the-Box” problem-solving is about continuing to break down the old box or known method, and shape the new box thinking to discover alternatives and solve complex problems via creativity and collaboration

The New Book “Problem-Solving Master” Chapter 3: Creative Problem-Solving Running businesses is an iterative continuum to solve problems large or small. Creativity needs a problem, and a creative person needs a purpose. Creative thinking and critical thinking often work in tandem for problem-solving. Collectively, innovation allows an organization to stand out and above the rest for solving problems creatively and maximizing the commercial value to the company.

Innovation as a Problems-Solving Discipline? Running a business is fundamentally a problem defining and problem-solving continuum. It becomes about addressing the correct need and perhaps the problem becomes how to identify the need at the right level. Any problem is the right problem if there is an attempt to find a solution. The reality is that, once people get into a routine at work, they typically get stuck at the “We always do things like that” mentality, and they do not like to hear about how things could be done differently to solve problems creatively. Innovation is change, it is never for its own sake. In essence, innovation is a systematic way of applying creativity to solving problems in business or real life. But how do you get motivated to be innovative on daily basis via solving real-world problems large or small, in a creative way?

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 2 million page views with about 4500+ blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way to human progression.


Love your writing, I do agree, blog not just about what to say, but why and how... you know, in this pretty age, we almost spend our time enjoying things that we had a hard time conveying things and awkwardly don't know how to do it
