Course Description

There is a well known saying which states: "If you continue to think like you’ve always thought, you’ll continue to get what you’ve always got."

It is easy to get stuck in a decision-making rut. We gather the same old group together and come up with much the same solutions to problems that we have done before. The danger is that our competitors are thinking more creatively. Markets and business practices are changing fast, and organizations need to be more creative in their approach to problem-solving and decision making. The purpose of this course is to help you, and your team, think more creatively in its problem-solving efforts. The topics covered include:

  • The different thinking styles people use when making decisions
  • Tools to help in creative problem-solving and decision making
  • The Benefits Realization approach to problem-solving and decision making
  • A structure for creative problem-solving and decision making
