About This Lateral Thinking Skills Training Course

Lateral Thinking Skills Course in Singapore

In this Lateral Thinking Skills course, participants will learn key concepts about easy-to-use lateral thinking tools and techniques. After this course, participants will be able to generate ideas with ease. The participant will be taught a systematic approach which will assist them to think outside the box.

The term lateral or vertical logic is purposely distancing from the conventional way of thinking, and, from the standard perception of creativity.  It is, also, perceived as thinking out of the box. Lateral Thinking is a logical process using subliminal and imaginative approaches to rationalize matters through unconventional ideas. This course seeks to expose individuals to the use of lateral thinking in real life applications.

Edward de Bono introduced Lateral Thinking in 1967.  He seized inspiration from the wise methods of King Solomon. One that he cited is the story of two mothers fighting over a stolen baby. The king’s resolution was cutting the baby in half for each of the women to nurse. The unexpected reaction from the women prompted him to make the final and obvious decision and gave the child to the more deserving woman.

De Bono correlates this skill with humour and argues that there is an altering moment from a familiar pattern to a new, unusual one. It’s in that instant the new concept starts getting analyzed and accepted. The difference between critical thinking and lateral thinking is that, in critical thinking, the objective is to judge the value or validity of statements and find the errors underneath them. With lateral thinking, the idea can, overall, be, discarded and will explore a radical way of achieving the same result.

This skill is mostly applicable in the advertising, marketing, media, arts, and, designs field. Being trendsetters and influencers, individuals in these fields are, more or less, expected to find new concepts to keep readers, viewers, and, consumers hooked and attracted.  Fortunately, it is not a skill acquired only at birth but can be practised and honed over time.

  • Blended Learning: Learning does not occur in the classroom. Virtually everybody prefers distinct ways of learning. Successful learning should have a multi-channel, multi-modal strategy.

  • We Understand The Industry: We’ve got a profound comprehension of the business, business design, challenges, strategy and the that our participants are in and have designed the courseware to cater to their professional needs.

  • Course Content: Knowles Training Institute’s material is relevant, of high quality and provide specific learning results. Participants will leave the training course feeling as they have gained a strong understanding and will also be in a position to execute what they have learned sensibly.
