Creativity and Innovation

Innovation training workshop


4D WikiBit


One can define creativity as the mental phenomena, skills and/or tools capable of originating (and subsequently developing) innovation, inspiration or insight. Pop psychology generally may associate it with right or forehead brain activity or even specifically with lateral thinking.


For many people, the word creativity most immediately conjours up associations with artistic endeavours and with writing; some have also linked creativity with science since at least the heyday of the muses of Ancient Greece.


The psychologist Robert Sternberg has proposed to apply the name creatology to scientific studies of creativity.


Today, creativity forms in some eyes the core activity of a growing section of the global economy — the so-called "creative industries" — capitalistically generating (generally non-tangible) wealth through the creation and exploitation of intellectual property or through the provision of creative services.

Learn Techniques to Enhance Development of Creativity and Innovation

Some workplaces seem to sprout many ideas, patents, new products and better ways of doing everyday activities whereas others have less of a sense of how to reinvent and renew themselves over time. What is it that makes strong cultures successful in creating high performance amidst massive change?


Innovation and creativity must be embedded in the values, structures, and systems of an organization. These things are consciously or unconsciously communicated by leaders to their employees in their day to day activities. Recent literature suggests that innovation and creativity fall into two basic areas: advice on what the individual can do to become more creative and how organizations can build a more innovative culture that maximizes success in times of rapid change.


4D Training provides organizations interested in building a culture of creativity and innovation with several options:
