DESCRIPTION

Problems facing organizations today are more complex than ever. They require new problem solving skills for real collaboration across different disciplines for innovative solutions. One reason that teams often do not perform well is that they just don't know how to think together. Rather than work efficiently, they continuously get in the way of each other "cancelling each other out." In this webinar, participants experience a proven thinking and problem solving process which enables collaborative innovation for tangible results even across silos. The process is teachable and can scale across the organization.
