The craft of creativity

Matthew A. Cronin (Author), Jeffrey Loewenstein (Author)
In The Craft of Creativity Matthew A. Cronin and Jeffrey Loewenstein present a new way to understand how we innovate. They emphasize the importance of the journey and reveal the limitations of focusing on outcomes. Drawing on a wide range of scholarship, their own research, and interviews with professionals and learners who employ creativity in the arts, engineering, business, and more, Cronin and Loewenstein argue that creativity is a cognitive process that hinges on changing one's perspective. It's a skill that anyone can develop, a process that unfolds over time, and is improved by interaction with others. Breaking new ground in the discussion about how we innovate, this book provides strategies that everyone can use to be more creative--Back cover
