"The teaching of design thinking seems to require a “design context,” including a studio space and partnerships with a wide range of collaborators. For Business faculty whose classes are not situated within such a context, asking students to adopt design approaches may not be realistic, and Creative Problem Solving (CPS) may present a more accessible approach to fostering creative capacity. CPS offers the advantage of being similar to standard analytical approaches to problem solving, allowing business students to build on their existing strengths as analytical thinkers, while developing creative capacity in an incremental way. Moreover, as a generic model, CPS allows students to increase the level of creative risk, as they grow their skill and comfort level."
