This article provides a state-of-the-art review of the complexity of creative mechanisms, and compares them with practice of creativity in the industrial context. Our work has led to the development of a systemic model of creativity that, we argue, can guide the development of creativity tools suited to complexity in design. We begin by presenting a creativity method that has been deployed in an industrial context, and our observations from the analysis of around thirty creativity workshops. Next, we present a comprehensive overview of the complexity of creative mechanisms at various conceptual scales. We conclude by presenting a systemic model of creativity that highlights ways to develop new tools suited to the stimulation of creativity in a complex industrial environment.

Keywords: creativity cognition, creative design process, creative tools and methods, systemic complexity, industrial context.
