The Problem Solving Lab

Clarify > Ideate > Develop > Implement

When facing yet another business challenge, numerous methods and ways of resolving are possible. Cool! But sometimes confusing as well. However, the pattern behind all these proposed methodologies and creative thinking theories is mainly one and the same. How about mastering exactly that pattern? How about getting back to the very basics of problem solving and dive into the science of any good thinking? Join the lab, get trained!
