  • Hello Louis, great story, but unfortunately 'collaboration is another story' and not about creativity itself (unless You define creativity as a socialising skill). It was shown some time ago, that according OTSM (general theory of thinking www.otsm-triz.org/en/category/отсм-термины/отсм-как-прикладная-теория/инструменты-отсм-ii ) creativity could be defined as set of 9 skills creativity-as-an-exact-science.net/docs/CES2011/03_AS_A2.pdf‎

  • Hello Louis, you made another great step to evolve the collaboration story. I very much like this new perspective by looking at how we can use our capabilities to return to more creativity. I'll give it a thought on how to adapt it.
