Applied Creative Problem Solving – Building ASQ 1304’s Next Generation Value

Complex Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, and Creativity continue to top the list of future capabilities for Quality professionals. The Creative Problem Solving approach will tap into your creativity, spark fresh thinking, and uncover new ways to tackle complex challenges.

This workshop will explore the tools of Creative Problem Solving (CPS).
ASQ’s November 22, 2017 Roadmap for Growth: Providing Member Value email to members identified the challenge of delivering Next Generation Value to Members through the Three C’s of Content, Communities, and Capabilities.

The February workshop will explore tools of Creative Problem Solving (CPS), share a project application, and apply the CPS framework to generate new ways of addressing what matters in our local chapter & community.

Our chapter’s challenges mirror those of organizations such as:

  • attracting and retaining talent,
  • developing a diverse leadership pipeline,
  • sensing and adapting to member’s changing views of “value,”
  • providing meaningful research & tools,
  • knowledge management,
  • demonstrating excellence.

We’ll exercise divergent thinking skills to create space for generating new ideas and will use convergent thinking skills to craft solutions to implement. In addition to applying CPS during the workshop you will receive links to a variety of tools and resources to strengthen your technical, communication, and leadership skills.
