Capability by design.
This option is for serious leaders who are concerned about how their cultures think, act, and co-create every day.
The Basadur Creative Problem Solving Profile is used as a starting point. It's used to gauge the true collaborative power of any team or organization. It was invented by Min Basadur, Ph.D in 1982 and continues to evolve today as a scientifically valid, cross-cultural psychometric instrument directly linked to the cognitive demands of the Creative Problem Solving Process. It immerses new participants into real-world problem solving capability.
The profile's research shows:
- We're a blend of preferences
- Different jobs and functions favor different styles
- You can be skilled in all four styles
- Strong balanced teams can be created with that knowledge so that they can tackle a variety of tasks like problem-finding, idea generation, challenge mapping, and reframing
The CPSP gauges the creative DNA of your organization. It's experiential, inclusive, and real. The results properly assesses a client's collective sensemaking/changemaking strengths so that a course of action can be designed.

2. Design Sprints
The Design Sprint is an intensive five-day rapid prototyping process.
Jake Knapp was previously a designer at Google who created the five-day rapid prototyping process used for things like Google Search, Google Hangouts, and Goolge Plus. He has since moved on with Braden Kowitz and John Zeratsky to Google Ventures where hundreds of sprints were conducted for challenges ranging from healthcare to e-commerce, and more. All aforementioned companies have used the Google Ventures (GV) sprint and it was absolutely pivotal to their businesses.
Since then, it has been refined into a solid repeatable process presented in Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days
