|Abstract:||<p>Innovation and creative problem solving training are increasingly important topics in organizations facing accelerating change and environmental volatility. This report first surveys how the literature characterizes creative problem solving, suggests how the various approaches to training or explaining creative problem solving may be categorized, and investigates the empi rical research concerning such training. Second, it reports new field research focussing on one particular training approach previously indicated as useful. Four attitudinal constructs related to ideation, the primary cognitive construct of this training approach, are identified. The implications for future theory-building and training policy alternatives are discussed. A speculative model is presented differentiating between "ideation" and "deferral of judgment". A method of categorizing Osborn's brainstorming rules accordingly is suggested.</p>|
