9780071361767: The Big Book of Creativity Games: Quick, Fun Acitivities for Jumpstarting Innovation

In the modern economy, where most workers are knowledge workers, creativity and innovation are the most easily sustainable competitive advantages. In The Big Book of Creativity Games, Harvard trained psychologist Robert Epstein provides dozens of games and activities designed to stimulate creativity and generate innovation in the workplace.

Dr. Epstein describes the scientific principles of creativity that underlie the games, and how these principles can be applied to tasks like problem solving, new product development, and marketing. Timely and innovative, The Big Book of Creativity Games is the ideal book for managers to turn to whenever they need:

  • Games that are easy to lead and fun to play
  • Exercises that go far beyond standard brainstorming techniques
  • Innovation jump-starters for team meetings and work groups

From the Back Cover:

Behind these creativity-boosting games is more than 20 years of scientific research by one of the world's leading experts on creativity!

Did you know that:

  • Group creativity techniques like brainstorming can actually inhibit creativity?
  • Failure spurs creativity better than success does?
  • Creativity is not an exclusively right-brained activity?

For work groups and individuals who do creative work, here is a light-hearted book of games that are based on rigorous creativity research, not just hype. Written by Robert Epstein, Editor-in-Chief of Psychology Today magazine and a Harvard-trained psychologist, all the exercises in this collection are based on Dr. Epstein's groundbreaking scientific research on the nature of the creative process. The Big Book of Creativity Games includes dozens of fast, simple games that foster and encourage creativity in the workplace and at home. The creativity games help to:

  • Produce dramatically innovative work
  • Convince people that they¿re creative
  • Get a new project off the ground
  • Perk up a meeting
  • Overcome a creative "block"
  • Use failure to spur creativity
  • Make people more inventive
  • And much more!
