Creative Innovation: Thinking Outside the Box at UNH

Creative Innovation: Thinking Outside the Box

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This program is traditionally a face-to-face classroom training program, but the Spring 2021 Semester section will be held online as we prioritize distance learning in response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). And it will be two half-day workshop.

In today's competitive work environment, we often feel management is asking us to do two jobs instead of one. However, many times our own inability to "think outside the box" prevents us from finding creative alternatives, making the seemingly impossible possible.

In this workshop, you will learn powerful tips, techniques and strategies for generating creative thinking and unique ideas that turn problems into opportunities. You'll assess your company's creativity climate and identify ways to encourage and promote creativity in yourself and others. You'll learn why it is important to challenge boundaries and how to use "thinkertoys" to spark creativity and innovation. At the end of this workshop, you will be able to: identify the inhibitors of creative thinking and the barriers to change and use a variety of creativity techniques to generate and encourage innovative thinking/problem-solving. You'll discuss: why businesses need creativity; roadblocks and barriers to creativity; what the LO-LO Concept is, and how to unbox your creativity.
