[PODCAST] #417: The Creative Pursuit – Introduction, Definitions and Useful Models


In this introduction to March's theme, I discuss the problems I am aiming to address, a brief history of creativity as a concept, what creativity is, and three helpful models for self-evaluation and conscious improvement.

- Am I out of ideas?
- Creativity is relatively new in human history
- "The Art of Thought" - A Pioneering Model of the Four Stages of Creativity, from a Fabian Socialist named Graham Wallas (1926)
- Ad man James Webb Young's "A Technique for Producing Ideas" (1939)
- Ad man Alex Osborn's "Creative Problem-Solving Process" (1953)
- Let's not forget about Sir Ken Robinson
