What is concept thinking?
Many contemporary challenges in business are no longer focused on efficiency or quality, but on concepts. Take, for example, a smartphone that has shifted its primary use from 'calling' to a multi-function device. In this world of things like ideas, a different way of thinking is needed to understand everything around us. And to be able to implement this new reality in our daily work. Conceptual thinking drives inspiration, by allowing individuals to create and nurture ideas. This kind of 'creative' thinking is seen as a gift or talent. But rather it is a skill. Conceptual thinking teaches you to always focus on the bigger picture, look at all the variables and distill a plan. To take charge of a project and make it your own.
Develop conceptual thinking skills
Asking someone else to think differently without giving them a way to do it is a real challenge. Simple tools such as drawings and flowcharts, guide thinking and help develop the habit of using visual aids that develop conceptual thinking.
