4.9 Is creative problem solving useful?

In the last activity, you developed an analysis of a problem or opportunity in your work using some ideas from the CPS process.

The next task will help you think about how you found the CPS process helpful and unhelpful.

Task: Reflection on thinking creatively

Spend a few moments reflecting on what you found worked and didn’t work with the CPS process in completing activities 9, 10 and 11. Use the following questions as a guide:

  1. What parts of the process did you find helpful?
  2. Did the process help you to uncover areas or issues about your work situation that you might not have thought about otherwise? If so, what were they?
  3. What might you suggest to a colleague or peer interested in using this process?
  4. What parts of the process were challenging or not useful? What might you want to change or tweak to make the process more helpful?
