Humans are creative problem solvers by nature. Every day we solve new problems, meet new challenges and pursue new opportunities. To do that, we tap into our creativity—our own unique blend of vision and curiosity, realism and imagination, analysis and action. When we do this by tapping into a diversity of input in addition to our own creativity, the results can be exponential.

Our challenge, however, is knowing when and how to engage others in collaborative and creative problem solving so that together, we can achieve innovative and optimum results.
