As part of a creative seminar with Drazen Caric, I was able to get to know the “Synectic” method and develop enthusiasm for its application. As a creative person, I know that ideas don’t just bubble out when we’re looking for solutions to problems, but that they usually come spontaneously. Inspiration sometimes happens through imagination, but also through new impulses that come from outside. Synectics supports me in following new ways of thinking and offers me structural and mental help in developing projects. This method is particularly suitable for generating several ideas at the same time and for overcoming the inner critic. According to the principle: “Make the foreign familiar and alienate the familiar”, surprising solutions and ideas emerge which I was able to successfully implement in practice and which contributed to the success.
(Anna Moser, Head of the project GENIAL, Department 6 / Competence Center Education, Generations and Culture; GOVERNMENT OF CARINTHIA)
