Everyone has a creative side. Given the right tools anyone can be creative or imaginative. You may have to find the technique that works best for you whether it be writing, visual or based off of others. 

Realistic Approach

There are numerous ways to approach a problem and solve the situation. always remember to do your research and listen to your team. Never jump the gun to just get an answer


Waying out all the important factors in a situation with a clear and positive approach will more often than not lead to better results

Good solutions come from open techniques

Oftentimes the best solutions come for the most unsuspected places and people.  We need to open our minds to working with others in a judgement-free environment.  Some would disapprove and call this a free-for-all.  Others would savior the experience for its quality outcome.  It is worth the time and effort to practice the techniques discussed in this lesson.

Visionary Thinking!

Even though content, tips, and structure provide the tools to successfully deploy a strategic plan, I think it is as important to have a visionary mindset that goes hand in hand with drive, initiative, innovation, and entrepreneurship, these soft skills are key components to the project success.

Having a skilled team that not only possesses the knowledge and experience but also performs under pressure, it's creative and confident about making decisions or adjust to situations that are very important to accomplish the tasks at hand efficiently and timely. Such accomplishment is only possible with leadership and patience.


Fostering an Innovative Work Environment

More people need to read this module and take it to heart.

Solving problems in the workplace

It is very important to use all resources available to solve problems.

Framing the issue

The best thing I have learnt from this course is that we need to do the more root cause analysis and ask why when we faces issues.

Group Energy in Meetings

In meetings, group energy should be harnessed to solve problems, such as, the major issue of maintaining good student attendance and punctuality, a problem that can be found in many classes at school.

Institutional barriers

I work within a large educational institution with decades of procedural stagnation ingrained in the system. The processes of Root Cause Assessment and group problem solving will be valuable in identifying and correcting issues within my institution.

Strategic mindset

Great inside on how to generate the ideas without judgement was interesting.
