Creative Problem Solving and Collaborative Innovation
In our turbulent world, problems facing organizations are much more complex than ever before. In a highly interactive workshop, participants experience new skills in finding, defining and solving problems and opportunities individually and collaborating with others for innovative solutions with consensus and commitment to implement. The methodology, called “Simplexity Thinking” is simple, experiential and inclusive and has been applied successfully in small and large organizations globally to tackle complex situations of all kinds. This unique workshop focuses on learning how to ask the right questions as well as developing innovative answers. Opportunities are provided for participants to share their different experiences and ideas about their own real world problems, learn from each other, and walk away with fresh insights to apply immediately.
Participants will discover their own unique problem solving style, learn how to value the styles of others, and practice working with team members of different styles to achieve best results. This is especially important because so many people at every level and organization are implementers, and resisting the desire to jump to the solution without thinking through the problem first is vital. Several case study examples are shared throughout the session illustrating the value of deliberately following the problem solving process and not “leapfrogging ahead”.
Participants are immersed in a safe learning environment supported by expert coaching to deepen the experience and maximize the impact. They are facilitated in engaging in a creative problem solving process with interconnected skills and tools which build the following:
- Confidence and a willingness to tackle problems and engage others
- Transparency and respect for others
- Building consensus on problem definition , solutions and implementation
- Bridging language and cultural gaps within teams
