Learning Tree International today introduced its newest course, Critical Thinking and Creative Problem Solving. The course, subtitled "Making Better Decisions", is part of the expanding Learning Tree Management and Key Business Skills Curriculum.
Over 3 days, participants will be led by an expert instructor through a series of interactive small-group workshops to build decision-making skills using critical thinking and creative problem-solving techniques.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn how to
- Adapt to different thinking styles in group and team environments
- Foster an innovative environment in their workplace
- Effectively recognize and remove barriers to individual and group creativity
- Carefully analyze a target problem systematically
- Turn individual creativity into practical business solutions
"Individuals who participate in this course will be taught techniques and approaches that develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as practical guidance on how to effectively leverage those skills in their workplace," said Jennifer Urick, Vice President of Product Development for Learning Tree International.
This course is valuable for anyone-at any level of an organization-who needs to make decisions and develop creative solutions to daily business problems.
Critical Thinking and Creative Problem Solving will augment existing Learning Tree courses in management, communication and planning, including Effective Communication Skills for IT Professionals, Business Process Re-engineering, Managing Change: People and Process, Management Skills for IT Professionals, and Project Leadership: Building High-Performance Teams.
Learning Tree intends to begin presenting Critical Thinking and Creative Problem Solving at its Education Centers in North America and in London, England in November, 2003.
