Creative Problem Solving Techniques - A Blueprint for Success
Learn how to explore and apply creative problem solving techniques that we all can use.
Recently, the goal of improving the effectiveness of organizations has become more complex and challenging. Rapidly accelerating change and frequent major discontinuities and interruptions now dominate the world where we live and work. Many that prospered during more stable times—times that rewarded routinized efficiency—now find themselves poorly adapted to today’s new economic and social realities. Efficiency implies mastering routine, but adaptability means mastering the process of deliberately changing routine. Adaptability is disruptive. It allows an organization or an individual to change and create deliberately and continually. It entails deliberate discontent—looking for new opportunities, problems, trends, technologies, ideas, and methods that may dramatically improve or completely change routines or introduce new processes. You will learn that adaptability can be conceptualized as creative problem-solving. With mastery of problem solving also comes self-esteem in work and home applications. This program will teach you solid critical thinking skills, how to understand creativity as a process with stages that serve as a model for adaptability, and how to create a safe environment to promote creativity and innovation that are necessary to stay alive in today’s business world.
