The difference between being creative and being imaginative is that if you’re creative, you will have created something. It doesn’t have to be Art with a capital A – a painting, a symphony or a novel. It can be a creative report, a flowchart, an action or a way of acting.
Whatever it is, it has to be out there and not in your head. It has to be something you can point to and identify. Can you? Or is it still in your head? In which case, it’s imagination.
