Creative problem solving is as much an art form as it is a scientific process. It requires creativity, intuition, and imagination. It also requires careful analysis, diagnosis, and step-by-step action planning. This program is designed to enable participants to learn and apply concepts and techniques related to an integrated approach to creative problem solving. Although it focuses on individual problem solving, group problem-solving approaches are also highlighted. Includes puzzles, activities, and discussion questions to promote solutions to tough problems.
