Necessity the mother of invention

I've just been browsing through the November 2009 issue of the Journal of the Southern African IMM, and came across an interesting article by R.M. Whyte, a metallurgical consultant.

Drawing from his personal experience, the author presents four case studies that demonstrate the value of creative thinking in addressing the challenges typically encountered by the extraction metallurgist.

He concludes that creative expression most often occurs in response to a perceived strong need within an organisation. By deliberately laying down meaningful challenges, management can stimulate innovative thinking and achieve extraordinary results.
