This feeds into the choice phase where the use of methods will be implemented to find the most suitable to manage the issues. The methods will have its own strength and weakness, and so depending on how the issues are viewed, the resolution will be influenced by such strengths and weaknesses. The resolution, happening in the last phase of implementation will capture changes needed to be made on the organization, specifically and holistically in order to address the issues identified in the creativity
