Time: 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET/12:00-1:00 p.m. CT (GMT-6)/11:00-12:00 p.m. MT/10:00-11:00 a.m. PT
This session will provide an overview on cognitive tools and a framework to organize them. Using cognitive tools—simplified to focus, organize, and guide an individual or group’s thinking—can help respondents articulate more clearly and with greater richness.
The cognitive tools presented are drawn from the larger field of creativity, as well as from other areas of theory and practice. A simple framework will be introduced that can be applied immediately, allowing attendees to:
- understand the link between different cognitive skills (i.e., visionary, diagnostic, evaluative, strategic, ideational, tactical) and insights
- learn how using cognitive tools leads to focused mining for insights
- gain valuable tools that stimulate respondents to think differently
Attendees will become more creative partners with their clients through:
- gaining a deeper understanding of diverse thinking tools
- learning advanced cognitive tools, simplified to tap into focused, clear, and deep insights
- gaining confidence in their ability to apply cognitive tools
Experienced QRCs interested in augmenting their skills set with cognitive tools will benefit from this session.
