PROBLEM SOLVING

Making technical and non-technical problem solving a breeze

The Programme:

The programme provides a complete problem solving tool kit, including unique tools for solving the most difficult of problems, which can include those of a highly technical nature (the technical problem solving tools are optional).


From ensuring that we have defined our problem correctly, to identifying great solutions, this is a comprehensive training and development programme.

Aims:

To develop the skills and confidence to solve problems with ease, even those of a highly technical and seemingly impossible nature.

Contents:

Introduction and Aims: An opening session setting the scene and agreeing the agenda and learning objectives for the programme. During this initial part of the programme, we also create the right environment for constructive learning and development to take place.


Behavioural Science: Understanding the nature of thinking and the potential suppressants that may have inhibited our ability or willingness to be creative. These include both internal suppressants (the things that go on in our own minds) and external suppressants (typically peer and management behaviours).

By understanding and (where possible) removing the suppressants we pave the way for the efficient and productive application of the thinking tools and processes that follow.


The Process: It is essential that we understand the process of idea and concept generation. This alone will make a significant contribution to the volumes of ideas and concepts we are able to generate.


The Importance of Focus: Highlighting the need for a clear and agreed focus for our thinking and how to develop the right focus.


The Value of Synergy: Highlighting the importance and value of harnessing synergy when thinking in a group.


Thinking Tools and Processes: A broad selection of powerful, robust and proven systematic thinking tools and processes that enable the generation of vast numbers of ideas and concepts on demand. The delivery of the tools and processes is interlaced with appropriate tasks to enable the application and practice of the tools.


Prioritisation and Selection: Techniques for prioritising the considerable number of ideas and concepts that have been generated and systematic approaches for making the right selection decisions.


Action Planning and Close: A closing session including the development of action plans to assist with transferring the learning into the workplace.

Duration:

Particpant numbers are restricted to a maximum of 12.

Participants:

The number of participants is variable and again ideal numbers are driven by the focus or foci and the ideal final result. GENERATE workshops can accommodate high numbers of participants.
