Introduction

Creative problem solving and innovation is regarded as a mystery by many people, something that one or two unique individuals can seek to do while more mundane minds stick to the daily grind. This view is reinforced by the ways people talk about creativity. 

The myth of exclusivity is further reinforced by the ‘creative industries’, advertising, and the like. Indeed, within any advertising agency, there are roles like ‘Creative Director’ working with the ‘creatives’.
