Online: Creative thinking and innovation

Inventive solutions to everyday problems

Creative thinking: a brainstorm of ideas that inspires you to ask questions. It trains your brain in "free association," teaches you to think without limitations, and to recognize opportunities and take advantage them. Who wouldn't want that? If you are able to make connections between things which aren't logical to others, then you have the basis for creative thinking. In this learning journey, you will start looking at things differently and act accordingly. Step out of your comfort zone and learn to think outside of the box. This will give your creativity the unbridled opportunity to grow and develop.
