This course provides participants with the tools to work through this process in a credible manner and to develop skills in problem identification, evaluation and resolving decision making that brings value to the organisation.
The course also leads its participants through the engaging experience of tapping into their creativity; developing emerging ideas; evaluating the viability of these ideas through processes of critical thinking; linking in the synergistic potential of working with others and channeling the resulting strategies into reality.
