Solving Creative Challenges

In 1968, Dick Fosberry won a gold medal in high jumping at the
Summer Olympics. Instead of diving with his belly over the bar and landing on his feet,
he did it reverse, jumped over the bar with his back and landed on
his back.

Nearly two thousand years since the Olympics in Athens, mankind
invented a new technique for high jumping, the Fosberry Flop as it is
now called

Amazingly, the innovation made was not due to technology, but a
change in thinking.

This is the introduction of a mini-workshop “Solving Creative Challenges” we gave at the Innovation Center of Leiden University in the Netherlands.

Sounds interesting?
