About the Thinking Differently programme

70 years ago, someone was Thinking Differently and the NHS was born.

The HEE Everyday Innovation Programme is a practical, introductory guide to Thinking Differently. It is hoped it will help you begin your journey about thinking differently about the everyday challenges you may face at work, consider the processes you currently follow and become more imaginative and responsive in your approach.

We have made short films that explain the concepts and tools which will help you see why the various thinking tools ask you to do certain things. We want you to develop new thinking that will lead you to new ways of doing. The Thinking Differently book is available to consider the concepts in greater detail.

The session gives you the opportunity to think differently about the everyday challenges you may face at work, so you become more imaginative and responsive in your approach.
