Jonathan Feinstein studies creativity, specifically creative development. While it is common to focus on the moment of inspiration as the essence of creativity, he takes a more encompassing and organic approach, studying how creativity and innovation are generated through an unfolding process of development. His work focuses on understanding how an individual or team forms a guiding creative conception which guides them forward exploring, gathering elements, and pursuing projects, ultimately generating creative insights and connections.
