Creativity techniques and creative tools for problem solving

Infinitely usefull. Think of this resource as a dictionary of problem solving techniques or as they call it a "toolbox".
Like most tools these creativity techniques all have their good and bad points. I like to think of these creativity techniques as tools in a toolbox in much the same way as my toolbox at home for DIY. It has a saw, spanner, hammer, knife and all sorts of other things in it, they are all very useful, but you have to pick the right tool (creativity technique) for each job. We will try and provide a little guidance along with each tool to let you know whether it's best used for cutting paper or putting in nails.

There are at least 200 different creativity techniques and tools available, listed below are some of these. Special thanks to the Open University for their kind permission to use material from their publication B822.

If you have knowledge of any other creativity techniques then please let us know - we'd like to make a full set available for all to use.
