Training has traditionally been an important area in information systems (IS). The 1990s will require IS organizations to be more productive and innovative in their operations. Training IS personnel in creative problem solving (CPS) techniques may be an attractive alternative for IS organizations that wish to improve the productivity of their personnel. An understanding of learning styles can be an essential factor in designing successful creativity training. The authors describe how the learning style inventory conceptualized and validated by D.A.

They go on to offer observations on likely learning styles exhibited by IS personnel and the appropriate CPS techniques based on those learning styles
