“Mathematical thinking will help us find unique solutions to the present day problems, but out of the box thinking would help produce a number of solutions to a single problem, thereby offering wide flexibility for the decision-maker to take effective decisions,”-said K. Balaji Reddy, Resource person and the Director of Malineni Perumallu Educational Society's Group of Institutions, an Integrated Campus in Guntur.

Addressing a training workshop on ‘Creativity - Think out of the Box’ organised by Naipunya Global Skills Corporation, in association with The Hindu Education Plus at Rajamahendri Institute of Engineering and Technology, Mr. Reddy said creative thinking would offer solutions for those problems, which can not be solved by regular analytical thinking techniques.

Objective

He asked students ‘to innovate but not imitate’ and by doing so, they can become more productive He said the workshop was being conducted with an objective of turning young engineering students to understand the importance of 'out of box thinking’' and introducing them a wide range of creativity enhancement techniques. The modules of training under the workshop are Creative IQ, Creative Logic, Creative Maths, Lateral Thinking and Creative Puzzles. He also said such workshops are important for any professional student, since little room was given to them to go for innovative thinking in regular academics. S. Ramesh Babu, secretary and correspondent of the college, who inaugurated the workshop, said creative thinking was essential nowadays in business world. He said that the management was keen on organising skills development programmes for all students of Swarnandhra group of colleges.

Students actively participated in the contests organised as part for the workshop.
