Creativity in Business
Fixation on established paradigms and practices can severely limit the capability of organizations to change, thereby jeopardizing the ability of organizations to keep up with changes in their environment and new technological developments. Overcoming organizational fixation is therefore a requirement for any organization that strives to achieve sustained success.(1)  It has been demostrated that a creative climate plays a pivotal role between leadership behavior and innovative productivity.(2)  Identification and implimentation of the tools to foster a creative climate in the corporate environment is precisely the nature drawing and spatial visualization plays in developing creative  and original thinking habits.
