Creativity and Innovation: Effective Methods to Develop Creative Approaches to Today's Challenges

Audio and PowerPoints for April 17 Day-Long Workshop at QAI Management Conference, Orlando, FL:


Today's development activities call for more creativity and innovation than ever before. Leading organizations are in a leading position because of their ability to creatively innovate. If you doubt this, notice how often the word "agile" appears in project management and testing methods.

This workshop describes a variety of "how to" approaches to be nimble, responsive, creative, and innovative to meet today's competitive challenges. Some of the approaches are:

Brainstorming, Brain-writing, and Wiggle charts
Advanced, rapid problem-solving techniques
A three-step process for multiple scenario thinking and planning
Communication methods to convince skeptical people
Mastering the language of influence
Powerful metaphors to drive your message home 

This workshop was recorded, and is presented here for the benefit of past attendees, as well as others, including those who attended the conference and could not be present for this workshop.

Workshop segments can be ordered individually, or entire workshop can be ordered as a group at a discount.
