Global suppliers of acclaimed creative thinking tools for management, education, science and the arts
In a world where we are increasingly challenged to perform more effectively with greater ingenuity, we need the right tools and methods to help us make the most of the resources at hand.
Idon Resources offers you a wide range of creative and visual thinking tools long recognised by entrepreneurs world wide. After many years of successful action in the field of business and management these tools are now being used by trainers, councils, health workers, designers, artists, writers, universities, students, teachers, families and children to name only a few
Visual Thinking uses colourful and stimulating visual aids to keep ideas easy to see and track at all times. The ideas are summarised verbally onto icons, capturing them in a form in which they can be easily moved around, altered and developed into patterns that reflect our thinking (IDea + icON = IDON). This provides the space for thinking where we can explore a far greater range of material in depth without losing sense of the whole or our direction.
The introduction of flexible modelling methods then help us to work with our ideas creatively, activating new perspectives and achieving pre-determined goals. This process of ideas diagramming attains better thinking through synthesising 'left brain' logical and sequential thinking with 'right brain' intuition and pattern recognition in a form that enables our mental models to be questioned and restructured.
This simple hands-on and transparent way of working with ideas rests on many years of research and testing in action.
