Home Workshops & Speaking &... Anticonventional Thinking Creativity Articles Report 103 eJournal Books About Contact
Hi, my name is Jeffrey Paul Baumgartner (hence the JPB in jpb.com). I am considered something of an expert in creativity and innovation. That's why organisations as diverse as the Genentech, a cutting edge pharmaceutical company, and the Prime Minister's office of the government of Dubai have hired me to lead workshops and talks with their managers and other employees.
I am also the author of The Way of the Innovation Master, the best selling and rather eclectic guide to setting up an innovation system in a big organisation, and The Insane Journey, a controversial science fiction humour novel.
I have also developed anticonventional thinking, a new approach to collaborative creative thinking and an alternative to brainstorming that works much, much better than brainstorming when you need creative ideas.

Innovation Blogger of the Year
I was voted the Innovation Blogger of the year for 2013, which was a surprise as, strictly speaking, I don't write a blog! I write Report 103, a popular eJournal and regular articles on creativity -- which are often republished by other blogs.
