IMPORTANT SUGGESTION (OPTIONAL)
WHEREVER THIS SUGGESTION HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN EXCELLENT
FOR BEST RESULTS
In order that participants master the techniques and make it second nature to think laterally I suggest as follows:
They divide themselves into small groups AFTER the workshop, and, over a period of 21 days, work on projects of importance to the company. They should apply their learning from the two-day workshop and make recommendations to the management.
80% of these recommendations should be capable of being implemented by the participants themselves with minimum support from management.
