Abstract:
This study presents an operational definition of creativity within the contexts of business, school and community. A design for the strategic management of creativity is developed. Suggestions are made for programs to increase effectiveness in the use of creative skills. Creativity has been viewed in the past as something that happens rather than deliberate activity directed to specific goals. Numerous studies have failed to find a significant relationship between measurements of creative skills and intelligence as delimited by IQ tests and other measures of performance. Creativity can be distinguished as a category, process and quality of intelligence, and both can be defined in qualitative and theoretical terms. Models are constructed in the study to classify creativity. The components of the creative act can be tracked. A model sets parameters and categories for investigations to permit variation of content in a relatively stable sequence of steps. The sequence can be extracted as a method to process ideas from any discourse.
