  An Essential Approach to Evolution
Carlos Raul Magnante, Business Consultant, Italy, Member
  I completely agree with De Bono, and I'd like to look at the "reverse sense" of his statement. Can I assume that, whenever I act as "lateral thinker", I'm able to abandon the "linker thinker" approach?
Linear thinking links my past to the future, so the only way I know to introduce changes goes through lateral thinking, which breaks with the past.

  Tool for Creativity & Innovation
Jacob Andrews, Entrepreneur, United Arab Emirates, Member
  Lateral Thinking and Brainstorming are two management tools for creativity and innovation in modern management.
Edward De Bono’s (1990) notion of “lateral thinking” and Tom Peters' and Robert Waterman's (1982) argument of entrepreneurship and innovation could occur when the management is ready to give freedom to create innovation and ready to accept both good results and mistakes.
These theories are somewhat against the bureaucracy. The team needs to think differently from the current flow. In short, they need to swim against the current odds.
Ideas are arrived at through the attempt to break free from current ways of thinking, by restructuring existing patterns of information in the mind and by exploring alternative and novel ways of viewing a situation, problem or object (courtesy to University of Leicester).
