CREATIVE THINKING AND DECISION MAKING
21 November 2006, London
Today's workplace demands an increasingly innovative approach to problem solving and decision making. Organisations need to encourage people to be innovative in their approach and services benefit from having staff who can 'think outside the box' and are receptive to change
This timely and intensive workshop will explore the need for an innovative approach and equip participants with a toolkit of techniques such as force-field analysis and mind mapping, that they can use in the workplace.
