10National Quality Center (NQC) Perceptual Blocks difficulty isolating the problem tendency to delimit the problem too closely inability to see the problem from various viewpoints seeing what you expect to see (stereotyping) saturation and failure to use all sensory inputs -Conceptual Blockbusting, James Adams
11National Quality Center (NQC) Emotional Blocks fear to make a mistake, to fail, to risk preference for judging ideas rather than generating them an inability to distinguish reality from fantasy - Conceptual Blockbusting, James Adams
12National Quality Center (NQC) Environmental Blocks lack of cooperation and trust among colleagues autocratic bosses who value only their own ideas and do not respect others distractions and lack of support to bring ideas into action -Conceptual Blockbusting, James Adams
13National Quality Center (NQC) Cultural Blocks when problem solving is a serious business, and humor is out of place when tradition is preferable to change the belief that any problem can be solved by scientific thinking and lots of money -Conceptual Blockbusting, James Adams
14National Quality Center (NQC) Tips Believe that change is not a bad word. Avoid being too narrow in the way you define a problem. Try to broaden definitions and see what insights you gain. Reconsider where new ideas will come from. From you and your team? Your customers? Experts? Or the world at large? Search beyond loyal and satisfied employees and customers, they may not give you new ideas. Ask the dissatisfied. Build a playful environment to foster creativity. Pause and rethink ideas that make you laugh when you first hear them. Use the PDSA Cycle to pilot test a few new ideas that are generated on a small scale.
15National Quality Center (NQC) Game: Thinking Inside the Box Its easy to get stuck in our thinking about any problem we are confronted with as our minds are programmed to think in a logical, linear fashion. Getting unstuck is not easy, but we can learn to be better at it. Working in teams is one way to get unstuck - NQC Game Guide
17National Quality Center (NQC) Paradigm Shifts- Joel Barker Video Discussion Questions: 1.What we can learn from business? How can this affect your program? 2.Where can we get fresh ideas? What is now proved, was once only imagined. -William Blake Even if youre on the right track, youll get run over if you just sit there. - Will Rogers
18National Quality Center (NQC) Creativity Game Show: Stump the Panel with your worst QI problem!
19National Quality Center (NQC) Creativity Game Show: How its played The moderators will: Call two teams at a time to sit up front, as competing contestants, one team on either side with moderators in the middle. (Teams 1 and 2 first, then teams 3 and 4, etc.) Give the two teams the same QI problemgleaned from the ones submitted when you came in this morning. Teams will: Brainstorm and write down, on the easel, as many ideas as possible, in 1 minute. The moderators will time you. Each team member will be assigned a role (physician, nurse, consumer, etc.) Remember to stay in your assigned personal roles when thinking of ideas! In each round, the team with the most ideas (not necessarily the best ideas) wins the prize.
