In this long-awaited American/Japanese collaboration, two international scholars and consultants reveal the results of their ground-breaking study: how the most intuitive and creative organizations solve problems.
After careful analysis, authors Nadler and Hibino discerned seven principles consistently used by all effective problem solvers. These principles constitute the framework for Breakthrough Thinking.
The importance of the Breakthrough Thinking principles cannot be over-estimated. Every day, in offices, factories, and homes, people try to solve problems. Yet, more often than not, their "solutions" are inappropriatem even harmful. It is the contention of the authors that incorrect thinking is the most fundamental reason for the failures of many enterprises and may be a contrubuting factor to America's struggle to retain a competitive edge. Here, they show how to correct this.
