Disruptive Thinking

Creative innovation and lateral solutions

To paraphrase Einstein, if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got. So to come up with a genuinely innovative idea or break-through solution, we need to be willing to change our thinking and use our brains in a different way. This stimulating and rewarding course explores how ordinary people can come up with game-changing ideas, and how mental leaps are made.

Ideal for thinkers from across all industries, this course introduces you to the art of lateral thinking and guides you through creative processes which can be used to generate your next big idea. Practical and experiential, as well as heaps of fun!

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • How creativity works
  • Sourcing lateral ideas
  • Creating a fertile culture
  • Radical vs evolutionary change
  • Anatomy of a breakthrough
  • Collaborative innovation
  • Ideas under pressure
  • Cross-training for creativity
