Thinking in New Boxes

In a paradigm-busting book, Luc de Brabandere and Alan Iny describe a fundamentally different—and far more effective—approach to stretching peoples’ perspectives. When people think in new boxes, they learn how to ask the right questions in order to open up the most promising doors to creativity, innovation, and opportunity.

How Does Creativity Really Work?
In a live chat on LinkedIn, Alan Iny, BCG’s senior specialist for creativity and scenarios and coauthor of Thinking in New Boxes, answered questions and gave concrete tips on bringing creativity to a range of business problems.

Thinking in New Boxes is a five-step guide that leverages the authors’ deep understanding of human nature to enable readers to overcome their limitations and both imagine and create their own futures. This book is a must-read for people living and working in today’s competitive environment.”

—Ray O. Johnson, Ph.D., chief technology officer, Lockheed Martin

“As impressive as teaching new tricks to old dogs, Thinking in New Boxes is both inspirational and practical—a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to sharpening one’s wits in order to harness creativity in the workplace.”

—Peter Gelb, general manager, Metropolitan Opera
