"Traditional" resources such as finance, products, technological strength, management abilities, or marketing/commercial assets seem to be no longer sufficient to guarantee continued operational performance to Enterprises, Businesses, Professionals and even Individuals.

This e-course will show that one and only one factor makes the difference between failure and success in any industry, in any business, in any venture, in any project, in any undertaking - and that factor is Creativity.

This e-course is designed to enable participants to understand fully the "mysteries" of Creativity, the mechanisms that govern the behaviour of human mind, the processes that produce ideas, the techniques and tools available for generating novel and valuable concepts, the modern approach to solving problems of any nature - and then to deploy operationally such tools and techniques in three very practical and actual fields: Creative Problem Solving, Search for Opportunities, and Continuous Improvement.

Dear e-Participant,Welcome to this e-Course! I am confident you will find it of interest, beneficial and, at times, also abit entertaining.To begin with, a quick presentation: I am Carlo Scodanibbio, Italian, Engineer, graduated in 1970,and with some 38 years of post-graduate experience in Project Engineering, Plant Engineering,Project Management, Industrial Engineering and Operations Management Consulting.I have been a free-lance Industrial Consultant for the past 28 years, and a HR Trainer for the past18.My field of activity is: World Class Performance in the Small and Medium Enterprises.I have operated in several Countries, including Italy, Romania, Malta, Turkey, Cyprus, Lebanon,Cape Verde, Kenya, Mauritius, Malaysia, India, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and neighbouringCountries.My “real-world” training style is very interactive. I am afraid this won’t be possible in the case of ane-Course, such as this one.And yet, as a participant in this e-Course, you are entitled to contact me for clarifications or further explanations with regard to the topics of this Course.You may do so by e-mail:mail@scodanibbio.com And now let’s start.The title of this Course is:
 
“Creativity: the ultimate resource for the years 2000”
Before I get into the fascinating world of Creativity, let me begin this course mentioning a wellknown “motto”:Yes: the world has changed. It happened a few years ago. Somebody says it happened 7 or 8years ago. Somebody says it happened 10 or 12 years ago. And somebody else says ithappened about 15 years ago. But this is not so terribly important. We all know that the worldhas changed….What is very important instead, is that the change occurred during the night, after midnight.....probably at 3 o’clock in the morning, or so… when a lot of people were sleeping… fast asleep.
