Creative Problem Solving – STP040
Some of the USEFUL stuff in there is:
Steve In The Field is back – OH NO!
What do we mean by ‘problem’ ?
The things that cause us to struggle:
What the heck is ‘convergent thinking’?
Quotes – they sound nice, but many don’t really help do they?
Lisa and Steve at the table are back – HOORAY!

Creative Problem Solving – the CEF full explanation is here
The key stages of the Creative Problem Solving model
Gather as much information as you can about the problem
Use – The 5 Why Technique
Ask more questions – Who? What? Where? When? How?
Define your aim – where do you want to get to, what would the world be like if the problem went away?
Remember, the problem may not be the thing you want to solve
Come up with as much data as you can on the problem
Use search engines
DON’T judge at this stage – just get as much varied information as you can
Now you sort everything out
Start to prioritise the things which may help you
Consider losing the things which are obviously unhelpful
Turn it all into a plan
Make it actionable
