This fast-paced course allows beginner to intermediate facilitators to go deeper into the CPS process, adding more facilitation tools to your repertoire.
You will gain a clear understanding of which tools to use at each stage of the CPS process, as well as how to modify them to fit your session objectives or add a bit of creative flair.
You’ll learn more about this opportunity during your course at CPSI.
This is a natural stepping stone if you have previously taken Springboard.
This is the course we highly recommend for all first-time CPSI participants.
Alex Osborn, the founder of the Creative Problem Solving Institute, invented brainstorming, which evolved into a more complete process of Creative Problem Solving.There is also a more in-depth page about the Springboard course.Completing the CPS Program not only enhances your personal and professional creativity skills, it prepares you to become a program leader at the Creative Problem Solving Institute (CPSI)!In short: analysis based support of decision making, design and implementation of solutions.Creative Problem Solving and Decision Making as a course teaches you this method.This course uses peer-group practices to prepare participants for working with actual clients.Characteristics of successful facilitation will be identified and practiced, and you will develop an awareness of your own strengths and areas for development.Apply what you learn in the CPS Program to identify better problems to solve, generate more and different ideas, produce better solutions, and act more confidently to implement those solutions.The Creative Problem Solving Program is comprised of the following courses, which are further described below.Armed with this information, learn to decide whether they should be further developed, consider possible negative results and weigh associated costs.There are multiple ways to make decisions, but one way proven to be very useful is the analytical approach - a methodology for making the problem explicit and rationalising the different potential solutions.
