About the Authors
  • Creativity in Product Innovation describes a remarkable technique for improving the creativity process in product design. Certain 'regularities' in product development are identifiable, objectively verifiable and consistent for almost any kind of product. These regularities are described by the authors as Creativity Templates. This book describes the theory and implementation of these templates, showing how they can be used to enhance the creative process and thus enable people to be more productive and focused. Representing the culmination of years of research on the topic of creativity in marketing, the Creativity Templates approach has been recognised as a breakthrough in such journals as Science, Journal of Marketing Research, Management Science, and Technological Forecasting and Social Change. It has been successfully implemented through workshops in international companies including Philips Consumer Electronics, Ford Motor Co., Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, Kodak, Coca-Cola and many others.

    • Describes a remarkable approach to improving the creative process in product development
    • Proven methodology has been applied at Coca Cola, Kodak, Philips Consumer Electronics and many other multinational organisations
    • Academically rigorous - the authors have published their research on creativity templates in numerous prestigious journals
