Disruptive Problem Solving: How Your Problem May Be Your Sweetest Asset

We all have ways of solving problems but we sometimes get stuck on trying to identify THE problem or tackling the root cause that may be unsolvable. Inventive thinking should bring huge degrees of freedom and more counter-intuitive ideas. I will share an approach to solving problems that will radically change the way you see problems.

You will learn :

  • To explore the world of the problem and unearth flawed assumptions
  • To build and break a problem causality chain using existing resources
  • To flip your problems using riddles and paradox so that they serve as resources in your solution
  • …that you are richer than you think.

This is the Systematic Inventive Thinking approach to problem solving. It is hugely inspiring and empowering. You’ll walk out with some sharp, edgy tools in your innovation toolbox.
