Productive Thinking has been invented by Tim Hurson and is presented in his book Think Better. It encourages you to use creative and critical thinking skills to look at a problem and come up with better solutions.
The Productive Thinking model is a six-step problem-solving and opportunity-finding methodology:
Uses a tool called DRIVE to imagine how things would be if the issue were resolved
Uses a tool called POWER to develop the selected solution into something more robust.
Uses the wall of time to develop solution into an action plan.
The Productive Thinking model builds on 50 years of research by the Creative Education Foundation, 30 years of research by NASA, and five years of field testing. It combines the situation analyses and ideation strengths of CEF’s methodology with the success criteria and project mapping techniques of NASA’s iDEF methodology.
All the templates in this collection have been reviewed and approved by Tim himself and we are adding new ones regularly.
At Stormz, we really want you and your team to be able to use these methodologies. That's why we created all the following workshops and described them step-by-step. They are powered by Stormz, an application that helps you design and facilitate your own collaborative meetings, in-person or online, for small and huge groups.
From their own devices, participants builds on each other's ideas and contributions in order to solve real business and societal issues and challenges. Stormz harnesses the creativity of a group with all the collaborative tools needed to generate ideas, prioritize, decide, share results and take action.
