Lateral Thinking & Innovating - 1day summer workshop

  • Aug 10, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Are you up for travelling "Out of the box"?

Just in one day you will learn and develop your Lateral Thinking & Innovation skills and expertise and apply them  to find solutions to your own issues while playing and having fun!!!








“We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” ... "Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler." (Albert Einstein)

Then, to make that change, using Lateral Thinking* is a very effective method. Moreover, it can be deployed to take shortcuts to innovating in a simple way, using as few resources as possible.

This intensive 1day Innovation Workshop with Nadine Meisel, a Cross-Disciplinary Lateral Thinking Expert, consists of various inter-connected, short, dynamic and practical exercises. These are based on Lateral Thinking and include The Six Thinking Hats as well asvarious other creative problem solving techniques.

Ideal for developers, engineers, managers, and anyone who wants to improve problem solving and innovation skills, whether professional or personal.

At the end of the workshop, the participants will acquire new methods and experiences on Innovatingnew perspectives and solutions on their own problem, their Personal Lateral Thinking Toolkit they can apply to their business and private affairs, as well as unforgettable moments.

*Lateral Thinking is defined as problem solving by an indirect and creative approach, going beyond the obvious. This makes it a powerful tool to generate innovative solutions.
