Investigative thinking and creativity : an empirical study of police detectives in Norway
Dean, Geoff, Fahsing, Ivar A., Gottschalk, Petter, & Solli-Saether, Hans (2008) Investigative thinking and creativity : an empirical study of police detectives in Norway. International Journal of Innovation and Learning, 5(2), pp. 170-185.
This paper makes distinctions among four investigative thinking styles of detectives: method style, challenge style, skill style, and risk style. Based on previous research, this study empirically tested, to what extent there are cumulative relationships among these thinking styles. Furthermore, this research studied relationships between investigative thinking styles and creativity in police investigations. Significant relationships were found between the extent of the challenge and risk styles and the extent of creativity.
