About the event

But critical thinking, lateral thinking and problem solving are fundamental skills that can help everyone, whether you are working in or leading a team, applying for a job or managing your home life. This one-hour workshop will help you to develop some of these skills.

What are these skills and why should they be important to you?

  • Critical thinking; Being able to ask the right questions and analyse information to help make effective decisions quickly, for you, your company and your customer is a sought-after skill
  • Lateral thinking: Developing unconventional approaches and ideas to the challenges faced by organisations. Combining process and creativity is the foundation of innovation and helps you keep ahead of the competition
  • Problem solving: being able to define the problem, its cause and possible effect and finding ways to solve it or find alternatives.

In this interactive session you will develop and practice these skills through the breaking down and thinking about the re-design of an everyday object in an engaging and fun way!

You will learn about:

  • Questioning to seek accurate information.
  • Analysis and review of data.
  • Agility to manage change.
  • Innovation by visualising and thinking differently.
  • Decision making through logical reasoning.
  • Learning lessons through review.

Who is this workshop for?

  • Anyone (companies, organisations and individuals) looking to improve the practice and confidence of these skills.
  • Anyone in the research, financial services and manufacturing industries or any organisation which values developing the actions of questioning, analysing, innovating, solving and reviewing.
