Buzz Words: Blank Thinking

Disruptive Thinking - is going against the grain, and challenging the flow of thought. So, how does this differ from "playing devil's advocate?" Devil's advocate is challenging a particular idea, while disruptive thinking is more about timing, than a particular topic.

Systems Thinking - is thinking about how the interactions between multiple components work together. It is part of a holistic approach to problem solving. 

Design Think - is the creative process that designers use to come up with their crazy ideas. Where a regular person might see bubble gum and think about chewing, a design thinker will see a way to hold his pants up when he forgot his belt at home or a patch for a run in the stockings. This is pretty much what Macguyver did on a daily basis.

Adaptive Thinking - is teaching clients how to be creative, and use the design process.
