Think Better | Do Better
Introducing the Creative Problem Solving Process
WHAT: Think Better | Do Better: Introducing The Creative Problem Solving Process
WHERE: Eight Members Club - Moorgate - London EC2
WHEN: FRIDAY, 15 JANUARY 2016, From 9:30 to 16:30
This experiential workshop will introduce you to an approach you can use to do your best thinking and be more effective, whatever the setting. It introduces you to a proven, transferable approach to problem solving you can apply at work and in everyday life. The result: you’re more imaginative and more productive. That’s why we call it: Think Better | Do Better.
At the heart of the process are certain skills and attitudes that you can quickly learn and easily practice. This is a process used by leading engineering, research and development teams inside industry to find problems worth solving and generate solutions whatever the constraints. In fact, the Creative Problem Solving Process underpins the radical creativity you’ve seen from 21st century goliaths like Google and Facebook.
This workshop fee includes a light lunch and a full-colour 16-page “how-to” guide.
