Innovative thinking has become a significant need nowadays. Businesses, governments, and large
organizations such as the European Union investigate how innovations could best be fostered.

of their economies. Consequently, one can find abundant literature regarding innovation
processes on policy and management level. Yet, we do not have much knowledge or research on
innovation as human thinking (Saariluoma, Hautamäki, Väyrynen, Pärttö, & Kannisto, 2011).
