We will examine the type of environment that is conducive to creativity within a team setting. The difference between divergent and convergent thinking will be explored, along with the value in viewing a problem through different lenses using a variety of media.The importance of ensuring that problems are defined using factual information will be highlighted in this managing teams course and how insight into a problem can be enhanced by using each of our senses. In moving forward, there is a need to deal with the root cause of the problem rather than addressing symptoms. In this way, deeper levels of insight and more robust innovation can be kindled. Creative solutions typically arise from defining and redefining the problem. This is often a fertile source of inspiration, rather than relying on brainstorming alone. When solutions are generated, a conceptual bridge can then be used for linking disparate ideas and providing a new source for innovation. Ultimately this output needs to be tested against whether the innovation is ergonomically pleasing and simple enough to implement, whilst also checking whether the new ideas meet the needs of both internal and external OutcomesAt the conclusion of this managing teams course for innovation and creativity, you will have acquired the skills needed to facilitate creative thinking and innovation within a team environment.
