Course Description

Session 1 – Let’s Go On A Journey

Sun Tzu, an ancient Chinese Military Strategist said, “Know your opponent and know yourself. Fight a hundred battles and win a hundred victories.”Sun Tzu, an ancient Chinese Military Strategist said, “Know your opponent and know yourself. Fight a hundred battles and win a hundred victories.”
This session will enable you to know yourself and how you stand with regards to creativity, namely: Do I understand what is creativity? Do I have the right attitude to be creative? How creative am I now currently?

Session 2 – Creative Thinking Killers

By and large, the schools that we attend tend to nurture us to think analytically and logically. Sir Ken Robinson, in fact goes as far to say that schools in fact kill our creativity.
Session 2 describes the different types of Creativity Killers and teaches us how to deal with them.

Session 3 – Creative Thinking Boosters

We must not just deal with our Creativity Killers, we must also fortify ourselves. This chapter will teach you various ways to boost your Creative Thinking capability.

Session 4 – The PCAN Model

It is not possible to teach people to think creatively, instead this book teaches creative ways to solve problems.

The problems we are given in school are pre-defined where the boundaries are clear and precise. But in real life, the problems are complex. The scope of the problems can be unclear and imprecise.

The PCAN Model is a step-by-step approach in creative problem solving. It breaks problems down into bite sizes so that we can better understand and solve them.

Session 5 – The SCAMPER-Plus Technique

We are trained to think analytically and logically in school. Why don’t we harness this thinking to prompt us think creatively?

The SCAMPER Technique uses a “Checklist Approach”. As we go through the 7 components of SCAMPER, we will be prompted to think of many alternatives that we may not have thought of before.

You will also learn the SCAMPER-Plus Technique. It is a more powerful technique than SCAMPER

Session 6 – The Concept Possibilities Expansion Technique

In a brainstorming, we are encouraged to suggest any idea whether it makes sense or not. More often than not , it is the illogical or crazy idea that will lead to the innovative solution.

However, when we evaluate the ideas, we tend to adopt only the implementable and pragmatic ones. The “crazy and illogical” ideas are usually discarded, even if they are more likely to lead to innovative solutions.

There is a missing link between the “crazy and illogical ideas” and the “innovative yet pragmatic solutions”. This link is in Conceptualization where we extract the concept from each crazy idea and follow through to derive the innovative yet practical solution.

You will learn how to conceptualize which is fundamental to Creative Thinking. Not many discuss this topic in depth.

Session 7 – The Idea-Fission Technique

In a brainstorming session, we hope to harness the creative brainpower of the group. But, creative thinkers may withhold ideas they perceive to be crazy due to the Groupthink phenomenon.

Session 8 – The Problem Reversal Technique

The starting point in Creative Thinking is to look at our problems from a different perspective.

The Problem Reversal Technique teaches us to view our problems in unconventional ways. The more we reverse the problem statement, the more innovative the generated solutions would be. When you use this Technique, you will be able to produce creative ideas at the snap of your fingers.
