Are Performance Measurement Professionals Creative?

I am adjusting the title of a post that William McKibbin had last week, titled "Are Mathematicians Creative." Given that my undergrad degree (from Temple University) is in math, and that math is clearly a huge part of performance and risk measurement, I guess I see myself to some extent as being a "mathematician."

What does "creative" mean? My favorite online source for words offers the following:
  1. having the quality or power of creating
  2. resulting from originality of thought
Nothing surprising here. And so, I would say "yes" to McKibbin's question.

Now to my question, I would also say "yes." Folks like Jose Menchero, David Cariño, Bill Sharpe, etc. have definitely demonstrated creativity, have they not?
