    Creative Problem Solving for T&D Professionals 

    Intended Audience

    • Learning professionals seeking to re-charge their creative energy

    • Training team members who seek to address strategic problems 

    • Any individual who will benefit from learning and applying strategic thinking and innovation skills in their role

    Overview

    Are you looking for new ways to solve problems and issues in your organization? Are you frustrated by mandates to “Think outside the box” that fail to provide the space, resources, and support to discover your original ideas?

    For T&D to serve as a strategic partner, it’s necessary to think beyond obvious solutions. Businesses easily get stuck thinking “We’ve always done it this way.” We tend to think of innovation as a magical property or some inspired idea. Or that only certain individuals have the gift, and thereby get to innovate for the rest of us. However, innovation rarely happens by accident.

    During this workshop, D.J. Netz will offer alternatives (traditional and unorthodox), best practices, and frameworks for developing fresh approaches to solving pernicious problems and addressing unmet needs. Along the way, he’ll share his experiences with collaboration, getting buy-in, and generating useful and unusual ideas that stand out.


    Objectives

    During this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to:

    • Interact with a robust set of strategic and innovative thinking tools 
    • Explore methods for driving innovative thinking within their organizations 
    • Identify actions to stretch their personal creativity


    About the Facilitator

    D.J. Netz is a senior instructional designer for GP Strategies. For thirty years, D.J. has conducted needs analysis and consultation for mid-size and large organizations, crafting solutions that balance technology with scalability. Along the way, he has developed innovative and popular courses for critical thinking, leadership, and sales training in classroom and online environments.

    He is a two-time Brandon Hall award winner and has served organizations such as General Electric, Gulfstream, Comcast, Sony PlayStation, Facebook, SAP, and Intel. He teaches courses on corporate training at Portland State University, and he is the past president of the ATD-Cascadia Chapter. D.J. has a Master’s degree in adult education, and he has been certified in Six Sigma problem solving by the American Society for Quality.
