Creativity Dr. Bono Style

Dr. Edward De Bono visited India in September, 2007. His visit has been of an immense value to many organizations. He talked on the importance of creativity and innovation. I really do not know how many organizations have started realizing the importance of creativity at their work places. Just to speak in few words, Dr.Edward De Bono is a creativity Guru, and an outstanding man accredited with 74 books to his credit.
