Discover the power of applied creativity

At the end of the 20th century I discovered the power of creative thinking. It was in a meeting where I watched how my colleague turned a group of resisters of a proposed change into a group that embraced the change in a few hours. Embracing up to the point that they co-funded the proposed change.

Wow, isn’t that magic? No, it isn’t.

The Creative Problem Solving (CPS) process is a structured way to help you switching on the creative mindset and guiding you productively through the steps of a change process: clarification, transformation and implementation. 

The situations in which you can apply the CPS process are numerous: from individual to small groups and large groups; from work to life challenges; from social to technical environments; from public to private organizations and from designing products to coming up with improved services.

Wouldn’t it be great to discover the power of applied creativity? Consult this site and learn how.


The training programs that I deliver are mostly in-company and often customized sessions. Here you can read all about how I can facilitate you and your organization in the process of change.
