Sense to Solve - Design Thinking

Move purposefully & deliberately between creativity and rationality to enhance problem solving skills

Creative Sense is a structured 2-3 day process rooted in Creative Problem Solving (CPS) and Lateral Thinking.

The process, principles and range of practical tools that this course offers, are ideally suited to solving problems, finding and leveraging opportunities. This skill set is particularly beneficial when you want to move beyond conventional thinking to arrive at creative (novel and useful) solutions.

A key differentiator is the use of both divergent thinking (generating choices) and convergent thinking (making choices) at each step (rather than just when generating ideas).

Creative Sense also includes tools that help to identify and address the needs of all stakeholders and provides highly effective project planning and implement tools.

Workshop options
