• ....Maybe your business is not going as well as you wish...........

• ....Perhaps you are stuck in a problem, trying to solve it for years...........

• ....Your costs are rising, but you don't know how to reduce them substantially.......

• ....Your product is at the end of its life cycle, what next?....

• .....You are thinking about a new innovative app, but what?....

You need a really good idea. An idea that hits through the wall.

Chances that you are caught up in a thinking pattern that hinders you to arrive at a really new idea. Thinking outside the box is needed, but how?

In this mini-workshop Gijs will give you some tools. Take pen and paper with you!
