Presentation by Eric Ehlers, Instructor
Topic - Problem Solving Seminar
Break thru that creative block with good ideas! This Creative Thinking Seminar will teach you how to solve problems like a pro. You will learn how to see possibilities and how to turn them into reality. This is for scientists, engineers, designers, and anyone who wants to make something better or invent something new. You will learn step by step creativity techniques based on examples from Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, and other famous creators. In addition, there will be current day examples from the composites and aerospace industries along with practical methods that you can use now.
This Problem Solving Seminar will take you thru five creative thinking steps as follows:
1) Define the problem – What needs to change and why?
2) Research – What is happening and what resources are available?
3) Incubation – This is the secret sauce to finding innovative solutions.
4) Development – Work out the details with a working prototype.
5) Verification – Confirm what works and what needs to be improved.
Better than just learning what to do, you will learn how to solve problems and generate unique ideas. The methods presented have been proven to work for over 2,000 years from such inventors as Archimedes who credited for the praise “Eureka” (I found it).
These Creative Thinking techniques will allow you to solve problems your competitors can’t which will give you an advantage over them.
