About the course

Solving problems and dealing with obstacles is a regular part of life. But occasionally conventional thinking fails, and you need a fresh perspective to come up with innovative solutions, especially in the workplace. This is where creative problem solving can help. Creative problem solving is different to other forms of problem solving because it encourages you to think outside the box. The good news is everyone is creative in some way, and creative skills can be learned and enhanced. This course will encourage you to think differently and find more creative solutions to problems, and it will help you to achieve this in three simple steps.

  1. You’re going to explore what creative problem solving is.
  2. You’re going to explore the four key principles of CPS in detail.
  3. You’ll learn about a practical tool that you can use to increase your very own eureka moments where you work.
