Creative Problem Solving & Design Thinking are ways of thinking that you can use day to day.
They are proven methods for approaching a challenge in an innovative way, helping people (individually or in teams) to redefine the problem in front of them, come up with breakthrough ideas and follow these through into action.
With design thinking we try to solve wicked problems or identify new opportunities using the tools and mindsets taught in Design Schools.
Design thinking is iterative, a creative process based around the 'building up' of ideas.
It is a thinking approach that stresses consumer inspiration and imagining the 'what might be possible'.
Design thinking leverages 'doing' to think, via 'low resolution' prototyping to engage users in dialogue.

Go: Interim management, Idea assessment and Training
Acknowledging that 'traditional brainstorm sessions' leave you with a 'list of things you could do' but no actionable results, we take our sessions further, leaving you with a few well defined ideas or concepts that you can work with and bring to life.
We can also assist you with further research to test the acceptance of your ideas and select the best ones to take further.
If you struggle to grasp/assess how your key competitors will react to your ideas in the market, our Key Competitor Workshops can also help you assess potential reactions you could get. These can be combined with an assessment of your intellectual property and strategic thinking on how to best protect your ideas.
