Ooops! and C,r,E,8,N,G! are both my creative solution seeking processes inspired by the Osborn-Parnes Creative Solving Process

The Second is C,r,E,8,N,G!

C –  Collect, choose your challenge to generate creative ideas for solutions

r –  read, reap, reorganize information about your challenge

E –  examine the information and various ways to look at your challenge and choose the one that best defines your challenge best

8 –  generate ideas for your challenge using 8 different approaches, creative thinking tools and techniques
