When you solve problems creatively, there are four distinct phases:

Clarify: This is where you gather information about your challenge and figure out the right problem to solve.
Ideate: Here’s where you come up with lots of possible solutions to your question.
Develop: Now you take the best ideas and craft them into good solutions.
Implement: This is where your come up with a plan to launch your solution, gather support, overcome obstacles and learn as you go.

In this session you will learn several techniques for the first phase: CLARIFY.

We learn how to make a clear diagnosis of what is happening and how to identify crucial information.  We explore how to determine the desired results so that we can formulate a precise challenge statement.

Albert Einstein once said: “If I had one hour to address a crisis, I would spend the first 55 minutes identifying the problem and the last five minutes solving it.  For the formulation of a problem is often far more essential than its solution”.
