Broken Crayons: Break Your Crayons and Draw Outside the Lines is a book by Robert Alan Black focused on helping the reader expand and enrich their creative thinking skills and train them how to help others do the same.
Broken Crayons is written in a conversational tone, as if the author and reader are discussing each lesson and chapter.
It begins with an analysis of the reader’s creative traits and their style of creative thinking. It then follows with chapters on how to maximize each.
After the focus on the reader is a discussion, it details various external and internal blocks of creativity and creativeness. It gives several examples of how the reader can eliminate or move around them.
Broken Crayons provides several idea generating tools, and a creative problem solving model, with exercises to help the reader develop a working knowledge with each.
In the final section of Broken Crayons, Robert Alan Black focuses on how managers, leaders, and parents can help develop the creative thinking of other people as a team leader.
