4 Roles of the Creative Process by Roger Von Oech 1) Explorer – Look for new opportunities to be creative 2) Artist - Creates new ideas 3) Judge and – Evaluate which ideas to be implemented 4) Warrior – Put the idea into Action
10 Steps of CREATIVITY 1)Open Your Door & Instil your Positive Belief 2)Acquire the Creative Thinking Techniques 3)Choose/Identify/Explore a Problem/Project – Be selective 4)Define the Problem/Project – Avoid making false assumption, ask the right questions based on fundamental, broad but narrow the filed of enquiry, avoid rifle-shot questions with “no” answer.
10 Steps of CREATIVITY (con’t) 5)Creative Thinking/Artist - Be creative with Curious & Open mind, transform into good ideas 6)Incubation & Breakthrough – In hibernation where unconscious processes take over 7) Judge – Critic & Evaluation 8) Verification – Polishing & Refining 9)Warrior – Be a Soldier & Salesperson. Put/ Transform your idea into Action/Product 10)Celebration – Time to enjoy the fruit & thanksgiving
Define the Problem/Project Step No. 4 of 10 Steps “A problem correctly stated is half solved” by Edward De Bono
(4) Define the Problem/Project A)Avoid Making False Assumptions B)Ask the Right Questions - Ask fundamental, broad questions but narrow the filed of enquiry, try to get ”Yes” answers and avoid rifle-shot questions normally with “no” answer. Before defining the Problem/Project, do the following:- For Examples: 1)Fundamental Question - An ailing Pen Manufacturing Co failed to increase their sales by all specific answers focusing on answering one key question,” What should they do to increase sales of their pens?” Eventually a new recruited Marketing Chief tackled the problem by asking the fundamental question, “What business are they realy in?” He found out that people bought their expensive pens as gifts for others. This changed them from being a Pen Co to Gift Co that sold pens. This led to change their strategies in packaging, distribution and pricing etc.
(4) Define the Problem/Project B) Ask the Right Questions (Cont’d) For Examples: 2)Ask Broad Questions & Avoid Rift-Shot Questions a) QUESS A No Between 100 to 200 - A better question would be “Is it largest than 150” instead of rifle-shot question," Is it 134?” which normally with a “No” answer. If the answer is “Yes”, then the next question could be “Is it less than 175” and so on. b) A Murder Case – It’d be better to ask broad questions that narrow the field of enquiry, such as “Was she murdered?” instead of “Was she killed by his former fired employee?”.

Prepared by Tsen Kui Loi Feb 2010 SOALAN ??? Question??
Pelajar perlu menjalankan projek secara berdikari manakala guru dan ibu bapa hanya bertindak sebagai penasihat. Guru dan ibu bapa boleh memberi motivasi, bimbingan dan nasihat kepada peserta-peserta, megesah dan mengedarkan borang berkenaan, memberi bantuan atau penyelarasan dalam sub misi atau pameran. The teachers & parents can act only as facilitators whereby the students are required to work on their projects themselves independently, i.e. the teachers and parents are responsible for motivating, encouraging, and advising the participants, signing and distributing appropriate forms and assisting/making arrangements for the submission and exhibition. Roles of Teachers and Parents Peranan & Tanggungjawab Guru & Ibu Bapa
Guru dan ibu bapa dalam sekolah menengah rendah akan lebih menglibatkan diri mereka kerana murid pada tahap ini belum berkeupayaan untuk merancang secara sendiri, pencarian maklumat dan pemikirn idea yang baru. Teachers/parents of lower secondary are likely to become more involved because many of these students will not be able to plan independently, research, and develop an idea.
