A man, or woman, who can look at a situation or need from 'outside the box' and come up with an idea or multiple ideas to help placate that situation or need. These are people who are willing to take more than one or the traditional approach to solving something and can instead offer more than one suggestion.
Our idea man gave us a way to look at how to solve the parking problem on the job site that made it easier to manage.
