Every company wants creative employees with lots of good ideas. "Be creative!"—has probably never spurred anyone on to imaginative high performance. But creativity can be encouraged and practiced. This e⁠-⁠learning introduces various methods and techniques for finding creative ideas —from classics such as brainstorming to stimulus image analysis. The focus of the training is in animated explanatory films. The video lectures introduce various creativity techniques and explain framework conditions that are necessary to successfully implement the methods. Specifically, the following techniques and methods will be covered: Brainstorming and Brainwriting, the 635 method, the Six Thinking Hats, the Walt Disney Method, and Stimulus Image Analysis. The e⁠-⁠learning contains valuable tips, concrete fields of application and "recipes" for a successful process. Transfer tasks help participants to integrate the methods and techniques into their everyday work. Learning questions after each module and a final test secure the learning results and confirm the achievement of the learning objectives.
