This is a structured Lateral Thinking service for generating and developing ideas on anything you want to think about. It is designed for people who are already familiar with Dr. Edward de Bono's Lateral Thinking techniques. Think of it as a journal for your ideas with prompts to help you apply Lateral Thinking effectively. Visit Learn to start.
