Creative Problem Solving Course

Course Description

In the past few decades, psy­chol­o­gists and busi­ness peo­ple alike have dis­cov­ered that suc­cess­ful prob­lem solvers tend to use the same type of process to iden­tify and imple­ment the solu­tions to their prob­lems. This process works for any kind of prob­lem, large or small.

The Cre­ative Prob­lem Solv­ing course will give you an overview of the entire cre­ative prob­lem solv­ing process, as well as key prob­lem solv­ing tools that you can use every day. Skills such as brain­storm­ing, infor­ma­tion gath­er­ing, ana­lyz­ing data, and iden­ti­fy­ing resources will be cov­ered through­out the course.

"I have a first degree in Geology and Mining and an M Phil in Environmental Management. I have worked as an administrator most of my life and needed certification in the field. Thank you for a wonderful training experience in the CIB Advanced Human Resource Certificate Program. Not only have you given me a certificate but most importantly opened my eyes to things I never knew, at my own pace and convenience. Looking forward to acquiring more certifications. #IAmSpreadingTheWord”
