Creativity tools are activities or exercises that force us to think in different ways depending on what we are trying to accomplish.  If we are generating ideas or possibilities we will want to use divergent thinking;  If we are closing in on the best idea or solution, we will want to use convergent thinking.  The Creative Problem Solving Process is a constant play between convergent and divergent thinking.
