Course Description

A high energy 1-day introduction of the theory and practice op Creative Thinking. We believe in ‘Learning by Doing’. You personal creativity will get a boost and you will learn how you can improve all parts of the Design Thinking proces and especially Ideation.


You will learn what the rules are for a strong brainstorm according to participants and process. You will practice several strong divergence tools to find new ideas and use different convergence technics to build concepts out of the ideas. So you will experience a complete brainstorm process and recognize what the tricks are to have control over Ideation as a facilitator.
