From Mycoted This A to Z of Creativity and Innovation Techniques, provides an introduction to a range of tools and techniques for both idea generation (Creativity) and converting those ideas into reality (Innovation). Like most tools these techniques all have their good and bad points.
From Mycoted When traditional thinking has become stale or dried up, visual brainstorming using graphic ideation may be a useful alternative Idea Generation Phase , set a high target: e.g. to generate 20-30 basic idea-sketches on a specific problem in 1hr.
From Mycoted This technique was originally developed by Glouberman (1989) and takes for granted that you have memorized a significant dream you have had and now wish to enhance it to allow it the opportunity to be of some function (see also Keeping a Dream Diary ). Possible suggestions of you how you may go about this are:
From Mycoted To experience creative dreaming it is essential to come into better contact with your dreams.
From Mycoted You use an analogy when you say that something is like something else (in some respects but not in others).
From Mycoted The problem boundary is defined here as the imaginary line between what a problem is, must be, should be, or could be, and what it isn’t, mustn’t be, shouldn’t be, or couldn’t be.
From Mycoted Ideal Final Result (IFR) is an description of the best possible solution for the problem situation (or contradiction), regardless of the resources or constraints of the original problem.

From Mycoted The Productive Thinking Model (sometimes also known as thinkx ) was developed by Tim Hurson , a Canadian author, speaker, and creativity theorist. It is a structured approach to solving problems or generating creative ideas that is based in part on Creative Problem Solving (CPS) and NASA's IDEF .
From Mycoted This technique emphasises the ‘rational’ rather than the ‘creative’, it is essentially a method for fault diagnosis and repair rather than for disorganized or systemic problem domains, or those where freshness of vision is essential. Kepner and Tregoe (1981) describe the method below, but its origins date from the 1950’s. The method is fully developed, with recommended techniques, worksheets, training programme's, etc.
