Kirton Adaption-Innovation Inventory (KAI) measures thinking style. The theory states that people differ in the cognitive styles in which they are creative, solve problems and make decisions.  Those who are more adaptive on the KAI scale, prefer their problems to be associated with more structure, and the structure is consensually agreed upon. Those who are more innovative, prefer to solve problems with less structure and usually don’t work inside of current paradigms.  This tool is excellent for teams and organizations who value diversity and want to understand how to best use the natural creativity in all people.
