Creative Thinking: A Field Guide to Building Your Strategic Core
The goal of this Field Guide is to provide you, the US Army’s officers and advanced enlisted personnel, with a bootstrap guide that you can use to train yourself to be more creative.
Why be more creative? Because creativity is the human brain’s power to adapt to fast-changing, life-and-death environments, overcoming emergent challenges and leveraging emergent opportunities. It’s what enabled our species to thrive in the chaotic and uncertain ecosystems of evolution by natural selection. It makes us antifragile in situations where computer AI turns brittle, and it will allow you to outcompete and win in volatile, unstable domains.
