Want to try and create change in a complex environment? Struggle to find engaging ways to solve problems and collaborate effectively with everyone involved? Then download our Creative Approaches to Problem Solving (CAPS) toolkit, which details 25 tried and tested methods to help you.

The CAPS toolkit groups the methods according to different objectives:

  • Gaining insight and input to help inform decision-making
  • Seeking new perspectives to spark alternative thinking
  • Reframing a problem to open up new ways of look at it
  • Harnessing new ideas to brainstorm different solutions
