Problem Solving Using Creativity Tools

A structured approach to Problem Solving focuses primarily (and rightfully so) on the identification of root causes. Most approaches assume that good ideas and solutions will naturally flow once the root causes have been identified.

This does often happen…but what happens with tried (and tired) solutions are the only ideas proposed? How can a situation or problem be redefined to create an entirely fresh approach? That is where organizations see stunning results by integrating Creativity Tools with other tool sets.

Creativity at its most basic level—is the process of generating ideas manifold. Innovation is the process of selecting, combining, refined and turning ideas into reality.

Using labs, tools and an infectiously fun atmosphere, this workshop aims to unlock latent reservoirs of ideas and channel them effectively.

Innovative solutions can be aimed at virtually any target:

  • Reducing waste and cost
  • Resolving long standing customer complaints
  • Dramatically cutting down cycle time
  • Breakthrough process improvements
  • Developing new products and services
