Creative Problem Solving: Tools and Process

Creative Problem Solving (CPS) is a framework which individuals or groups can use to formulate problems, opportunities, or challenges; generate and analyze many, varied and novel options; and plan for effective implementation of new solutions or courses of action. This CPS framework builds on over four decades of theory, research, and application in a variety of contexts. CPS offers a powerful set of tools for productive thinking and can be learned and used successfully by children, adolescents and adults. It is currently used world-wide in business, industry and education. Included with this course, students will learn about their individual preference for problem solving.
