Software and inventive ideation

09 Mar 2009

A plethora of creative thinking techniques and invention heuristics exist to guide problem solvers towards innovative solutions. One of the problems that one is faced with is the selection of the appropriate technique for a specific problem, since none of them covers the full spectrum of approaches towards problem solving. A recent model that attempts to capture the essence of all of these techniques and heuristics, facilitates a more generic approach. This model is leveraged to construct Ideation Domains for software development.
