Decision making: creative thinking is open ended and thus might be taught to be out of place in a decision –making process. Its uses are:

*setting goals and objectives: – since they need to be as effective and well thought out as possible.

*generating courses of action, from which to select the best or most appropriate course of action.

*inserting pauses, which helping the thinker think anew.

Problem solving: problem solving is the recognition of a change situation. Something has to be done or changed to make the situation better. There is a need for change. Change too is the statement of a problem; the desire for change, once analyzed, may identify a problem that is causing the longing for change.

Creative thinking is the thinking technique of change:

*before making any attempt to tackle the problem, creative thinking can be used to make a list of possible approaches to the problem.

*when a problem has proved impossible to solve with ordinary logical thinking methods, the use of creative thinking helps to produce new angles on the problem.

When a solution has been found that seems not quite perfect, creative thinking help to find alternatives.

Routine thinking: everyone needs to think for at least part of the day. No task can be done effectively without thought. Otherwise a robot could handle all the jobs in the world. Anyone who accepts the need to think should also consider the need to think creatively.

Specific applications: creative thinking will automatically be more effective than logical thinking on the following occasions.

*where direct innovation is needed;

*simplification of a existing idea;

*problem soling;

*where change has occurred;

*where new information is produced;

*where there is a need to look at information in different ways;

*where a creative response is required;

*where there is a need to prevent the polarization of ideas;

*regular periodic assessment of ideas to ensure that they still satisfy the need they were evolved to meet.

Motivational force: motivated staff means an affective and happy organization. Creative thinking is a good motivation –based technique, particularly when used in brainstorming sessions. Creative thinking involves the thinker in his or her environment and its problems; it offers a greater chance of solution of those problems, a higher chance of evaluation and puts all problems into context.
