About the Creative Education Foundation

In 1954, Alex Osborn, one of the original “Mad Men” who coined the term “brainstorming”, established the Creative Education Foundation (CEF). Osborn asserted that everyone is creative, and that creativity can be taught. In 1955, Sidney J. Parnes joined Alex and together they developed the Creative Problem Solving process (CPS) and held the first Creative Problem Solving Institute (CPSI). With CEF and CPS training, Alex and Sid launched the first global creativity movement.

The Creative Education Foundation's mission is to spark personal and professional transformation by empowering people with the skill set, tool set, and mindset of deliberate creativity. CEF’s primary programs are the Creative Problem Solving Institute (CPSI), a four-day creativity conference that welcomes more than 400 people from around the world annually; Creative Problem Solving Professional Development training for teachers and other professionals; the Journal of Creative Behavior, the first and longest running creativity journal; the Sidney J. Parnes Global Fellowship; and the Ruth B. Noller Grant Award.
