Lateral Thinking Should Be Taught at Univ / MBA

I recommend that this special subject "lateral thinking" should be a part of the engineer's and business management students in graduation and post graduation studies. Especially in India, where students are asked to follow what the book says and their minds are closed.

Students Studying Lateral Thinking

Hi Cyril - I agree - I have trained post-graduate students in business studies in lateral thinking and have always had good feedback as to the value of this training.

Learning and Training are Different

It is impossible to teach everything. In fact it would be difficult to find right tutors who may teach all. However masters programs are meant to put students on path of self learning and teaching further.
In such a situation lateral thinking which requires specific inputs, and is useful only to some of the people may be kept in the area of special training and kept out of curriculums of MBAs.
The techniques covered in 12manage are quite useful but all of these cannot be covered in any course to satisfactory level. These are better left for self discovery and assimilation by serious students.
