KILN principals offer workshops to help people do better creative work and to build skills for front-end-of-innovation & intrapreneurial activities.
Human processes and deliberate creativity (5-day course)
Covering a range of topics from psychology, adult learning and teaming to the Osborn-Parnes-Basadur Creative Problem Solving Process, this experiential course allows experienced educators to learn how to facilitate IdeaKeg in classroom and peer settings to ignite curiosity, scaffold new connections and unleash innovative thinking. Features a customised 325-page learners manual created by KILN, called Curiosity, Making Connections and Creating Value Using the Creative Problem Solving Process.
This course debuted in 2015 for senior leaders and faculty at the top-ranking USA engineering college, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, with support from KEEN, The Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network.
The pre-session learners' survey and individual 90-minute remote coaching sessions valid for 3 months after the course ensure it is tailored to individual needs.
Creative Problem Solving Process (CPS)
Gregg Fraley has been teaching CPS for over two decade, to corporate clients, at CPSI and other leading creativity and innovation conferences. The course is interesting, clear and practical. Feedback is always positive. Most often, workshops run 1 full-day or 2 days, affording time to work on a team challenge.
