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 on how to get from one or several chosen ideas to one or several workable solutions. How can you make a solution even stronger, create more depth and detail? At the end of this stage, we should have tested several ones. We also learn techniques to implement your solution. How do we build a well thought out plan? What will help and hinder us and how do we deal with resistance? How do we build a burning platform?
David Kelley, founder of IDEO, famously said, “Fail faster to succeed sooner”. Ideas are of little use if they stay put as ideas. You can only assess their merits when you bring them to life and let others poke at them.

“People think too easily that innovation will come naturally if you organize a brainstorming session or two. But innovation requires specialized knowledge and techniques and a disciplined approach. Ouzia brought that knowledge and mindset to our team and it made a big difference!”
“The FourSight Thinking Profile has helped me enormously to understand my own and other people’s behaviours and, as a consequence, has massively improved collaboration.”
