I attended a workshop last night on lateral thinking for innovation and there were a couple of exercises - and i know the MoT community, you love a good problem to solve.
So the example is the Titanic - a tragic accident where over 1,500 sadly died,
- The iceberg it hit was approximated at 50 to 100 feet high and 200 to 400 feet long,
- People would have survived for around 30 minutes in the freezing cold water
- The lifeboats could only hold 50% of the passengers onboard.
The problem to solve: How could we have saved more people on the titanic?
