Creative planning is a deliberative technique often embedded within a larger participatory planning process. It's goal is to relieve participants of practical or analytical constraints so that brainstorming and idea generation can flow organically.

Problems and Purpose

Participatory planning initiatives are often laden with budget, time or space constraints which can cause participants to censor or withhold ideas they perceive to be impractical. By initiating a 'creative planning' exercise, facilitators specifically ask participants to think about and share those ideas - no matter how far-fetched or 'outside the box'. In doing so, other participants may be able to identify ways in which ideas believed to be outside of project constraints can be modified and thus made feasible.
