The LATERAL SHORTCUTS methodology consists of
1) reframing business challenges and untangling root causes,
2) applying LATERAL Thinking* to generate innovative ideas,
3) taking SHORTCUTS and shaping solutions by combining all the ingredients in a smart new way.

*Lateral Thinking is solution finding by an indirect and creative approach going beyond the obvious in contrast to conventional logical thinking. The term was coined by Edward de Bono.

HOW:
The LATERAL SHORTCUTS approach shortcuts everything (times, processes etc.) using specific methods, mindsets and techniques in appropriate modes of consulting, coaching, workshops and lectures.
The methodology can be applied to all areas and phases of business, innovation and design, from earliest insights to final implementation.
