This project explores the idea of fostering creativity in the physical work environment through the use of a training center. The training center would be a place where employees and management of an organization could learn about the Creative Problem Solving process using elements such as play, incubation, and an individual’s interaction with their physical surroundings. Once the physical requirements of what makes a creative environment are learned in the training center, the techniques could then be applied to the workplace in order to encourage a more productive and positive atmosphere. The research and different studies in this paper help to illustrate what makes a workplace creative, what the benefits of a creative workplace are, and how a training center could teach organizations how to implement a creative environment.
