Creative Problem Solving

Our Creative Problem Solving one-day course equips teams with a collaborative and creative approach to problem solving that IVE have developed over the last 20 years, to enhance and develop the creativity of your staff and embed creative thinking into your business.


Research has shown that 98% of five year olds have genius levels of creativity, but by the time they reach adulthood this has reduced to a meagre 2%.

Our training shows that this success-limiting process can be reversed and that creative behaviour can be re-learned. We achieve this by combining activities and materials that deconstruct the barriers that are built on the journey to adulthood so that ideas can be generated without constraint, opening up the imagination to new possibilities.

Who is it for?

Our Creative Problem Solving one-day course is for current and aspiring middle and senior managers in any industry who want to develop their capacity to solve problems innovatively, generate new ideas and execute them.

What will you learn?

The module takes participants through a creative ‘cycle’ and focuses on the types of behaviour, language and structure needed in order to generate innovative solutions that lead to action.We also explore how this process can be embedded within organisational mechanisms and systems; exploring meeting structures, backward/forward planning and action planning.This approach increases efficiency, innovation and success.

Format and delivery

Our Creative Problem Solving one-day course looks to equip teams with a collaborative and creative approach to problem solving that IVE have developed over the last 20 years. This approach involves a process in which the problem is owned by an individual and the problem solving process is owned by someone else. Within a creative or innovative climate in which you want to solve problems it is important that there are clearly defined roles and a structure that allows ideas to flow in the direction of an action plan.
