Three decades later, my early investment in Synectics innovation training continues to demonstrate a healthy ROI! Unshackled from linear and closed minded thinking, open to ideas that at first appear asymmetric, the facilitation skills learned at Synectics have been a springboard for me to take great advantage of a global and a richly diverse team within a multinational firm. Thanks for expanding and enriching my leadership potential.

Over the years, I have found using the Synectics approach to creative problem solving to be invaluable. They allow people to not only become more creative, but also to better communicate, give and receive feedback, and ensure a free flow of ideas. Using Synectics extensively as part our qualitative consumer research has resulted in defining consumer opportunities and developing successful new concepts
