Creativity and Innovation Skills

ODC


Course introduction

Like it or not, the environment today is a no-holds-barred, relentlessly competitive and "winner takes all" one. And customers and businesses consider the winner as the one who stands out and brings the most value to them. As an entrepreneur or a working professional, are you currently trying to make a difference so your results stand out and be noticed by your target groups? What methods and thinking are you applying that actually help you make the difference? If after countless efforts, your actions have not brought the required results, then a serious rethink is needed HOW you are going about doing things, standing out from others, being noticed and winning! What you need is the ability to create brilliant, new ideas that no one else has thought of before!
