Creativity & Innovation Toolkit

Simple. Practical. Effective.

Using Tools Makes Us Different

Just as man and higher apes are distinguished from the lower primates by their use of tools, so higher order thinkers are distinguished by their use of thinking tools.

"I have learned in my research that the tool approachto thinking is very effective. This involves the deliberate use of thinking tools in a systematic way to address an issue or problem".

- Dr Edward de Bono
