Zoom In / Zoom Out: How to Tame the Creativity Wolf Without Killing It with Prof. Shlomo Maital (Technion/MIT)
Time: 9 às 18h
Place: Antonio Gillioli Hall, Building A - IME-USP
This one-day workshop will offer participants a simple, effective and proven method for generating creative change-the-world ideas that are novel, useful and practical, and then testing and implementing them with carefully-designed business plans. Each participant will leave the workshop with a Personal Creativity Machine – a personalized system for creating ideas and implementing them. The workshop is based on the speaker’s book The Imagination Elevator: Zoom In/Zoom Out For More Creativity, Fun & Success, to be published later this year. Each participant will receive a soft copy, and a discount on the price of the hard copy when it becomes available.
