Simplex is a creative problem solving process that is used to identify solutions to complex problems. Many of the problems we encounter are fuzzy situations, meaning that they are ambiguous, unstructured, and do not have a clear solution. The Simplex process provides a systematic approach for problem solving that encourages innovation and creativity through critical thinking.
Simplex takes participants through 8 steps from problem finding to action, by applying creative thinking skills of diverging, converging and deferral of judgment.
