Not many may be aware that creative thinking is not only vital for survival of corporates and for the careers of executives,but that it can be easily learnt. It was Dr.Edward de bono who researched into the skills of creativity and discovered that 'Thinking' and ‘Creative Thinking' are not necessarily inherited talents but in fact can be fairly easily learnt by an individual.
The technique of Lateral thinking was thus discovered by Dr Bono and has been available for several decades across the world. These techniques are practiced in most of the Fortune 500 companies and in small and big companies all over the world. There are organizations that have set up full fledged Lateral Thinking departments to continuously generate innovative ideas,there is now an acknowledgment that merely delivering quality is not enough. The customer demands innovative products and services on a continuous basis.

Ravi's workshop will help participants think out of the box on any subject.
Creativity is not a luxury that only big organizations can afford.
Creativity has become essential for any organization large or small. To
learn practical creativity is possible here in India at an affordable price
- an investment that can be recouped in three weeks. Results are definite and
often immediate - sometimes in the class room itself.
Out of the box thinking is not the prerogative of geniuses but in fact is
possible for anyone who learns the techniques of creative thinking and
diligently applies these tools .Innovation is necessary for the survival and
prosperity of not only organizations but also of individuals. Those of us
who are capable only of logical thinking or routine responses to issues are
bound to be replaced by software. It is only those who are capable of going
beyond logical thinking who cannot be replaced by computers who will in
fact be highly in demand.
