Optimisation Influencers


noun: the action of making the best or most effective use of a resource


Optimisation is influenced by: machines, systems, chemicals and people.


Our workshops for optimisation prioritise people, by training them in 3 key optimisation skills:

  • Critical thinking
  • Lateral thinking
  • Problem solving


The workshop format:

  • We coach the delegates to complete a 9 stage project process (from definition, through to evaluation).
  • Throughout this process, delegates practise a continuous cycle of actions to demonstrate the 3 optimisation skills.
  • The vehicle for simulating the project process is a skilled creative task, which provides a practical, technical and fun basis for learning. This contributes to a culture of continuous professional development (CPD) and maximises the potential of people.


Critical thinking, lateral thinking, problem solving

The workshop take-aways:

  • Optimisation report 
  • Training completion certificate
