While some people seem to be simply bursting with creativity, others find it a struggle to think outside the square. This course will teach you how to boost your creative juices.
In this course, you will identify ways to develop your creative side and build a creative environment. Youll also learn a basic problem-solving process, individual creative thinking tools (such as the RAP model, shoe swap technique, mind mapping, metaphors, and toys), and team-based creative thinking tools (such as brainstorming, brainwriting, rolestorming, the stepladder technique, and slip writing).
