The Key to Creativity Enablers and Barriers
Each of the questions in the Personal Creativity Assessment (PCA) measures a specific enabler or barrier that can have an important effect on your creativity. There are a great many possible factors that can affect how creative you are (62 in this Assessment). It is difficult, if not possible, to work on every factor that might affect your creativity. Instead, the PCA helps to focus on a handful of factors that are important right now, based on your individual profile. The assessment will help you identify the most likely candidates for work right now.

The PCA allows an individual to quickly determine how they measure up in the realm of creativity. The 62-item assessment correlates to 31 creativity barriers and 31 creativity enablers. The PCA also provides useful instructions on how to either overcome or enhance barriers and enablers. Presented in a non-threatening format, the PCA is an excellent activity to conduct in a workshop or group setting where creativity is an issue.
The Facilitator Guide provides a complete explanation of the rationale behind the PCA, as well as detailed instructions for conducting the assessment. It also includes step-by-step guidance for integrating the PCA into a training programme. The Manager's Pocket Guide to Creativity, by Alex Hiam, is also available as a handout for participants.
