Course Overview

Creativity is key when it comes to starting business ventures and designing products and services. It is also an essential skill for being able to adapt to a constantly changing environment.


This dynamic one-day workshop is based on the principle that we all have the capacity to be creative. However, we often need to use a tool or follow a process to bring out the creativity within us.


You will be introduced to 16 creativity tools that you can use to generate creative solutions to problems that your business is facing. You will then work in groups to use some of these techniques on an engaging case study.
