About the Course

In today’s ever-growing and changing world, being able to think creatively and innovatively are essential skills. It can sometimes be challenging to step back and reflect in an environment which is fast paced or when you are required to assimilate large amounts of information. Making sense of or communicating new ideas in an innovative and engaging way, approaching problems from fresh angles, and producing novel solutions are all traits which are highly sought after by employers. This course will equip you with a ‘tool-box’, introducing you to a selection of behaviours and techniques that will augment your innate creativity. Some of the tools are suited to use on your own and others work well for a group, enabling you to leverage the power of several minds. You can pick and choose which of these tools or techniques suit your needs and interests, focusing on some or all of the selected approaches and in the order that fits best for you. The practical approach of this course enables you to acquire an essential skill-set for generating ideas, with plenty of: - Fun e-tivities and exercises; - Practical lectures and tips; - Video representations of the techniques in action. By the end of this course you should be able to: - Pick a type of brainstorming you think will be useful to apply to a challenge - Use alphabet brainstorming in tackling a challenge - Use grid brainstorming in tackling a challenge - Use a morphological chart to synthesise a solution to a challenge - Use the TRIZ contradiction matrix to identify recommended inventive principles - Apply SCAMPER to a range of challenges The greatest innovators aren’t necessarily the people who have the most original idea. Often, they are people- or teams- that have harnessed their creativity to develop a new perspective or more effective way of communicating an idea. You can train your imagination to seize opportunities, break away from routine and habit, and tap into your natural creativity. Join this course and a community of practitioners in CREATIVITY!...

Amazing to find out that I have been using the Six thinking Hats tool all my adult life and I wasn't even aware of its existence! As an Event Manager, I would definitely be applying many of the tools.

I enjoyed this course right from the start. The videos are relatable and exciting as so were the reading exercises to get a better knowledge of how to think and easy, fast steps to get to those ideas.

Except TRIZ, which I think is for people in technical fields, I have benefited from all the methods and tools that are instructed in this course. It starts with an attention-grabbing definition of creativity stating that creativity is imagination with responsibility and ends with an optional e-tivity which asks for your insight as a response to the question "What innovation do you think the world needs?".

In my opinion, the examples used in the course should be more versatile rather than being on technical issues like moving people from one floor to another in a workplace. This course should be designed for people in social sciences as well.

I​n general, I would recommend this course. I wish I had taken it many years earlier. Regarding TRIZ, I wish it had been explained to a larger extent, it was not very clear as to how to solve a problem since I am not involve in engineering. Here only 2 principles were mentioned and tho orther 37 not. Part of CPS and Doble Diamond were not very clear either.

I appreciate your hard work you have put together in this course unfortunately I don't think your questions at the first quiz were well defined and I don't agree with the score received. I used commons sense.

I am hoping for some real knowledge at your course and I would advise to review your questions

Thanks
