INTEGRATIVE THINKING 2.0:
A USER’S GUIDE TO YOUR OPPOSABLE MIND
Drucker says, “knew that the right decision demands adequate disagreement
Use conflicting ideas to truly understand the problem.
Trial and error
Learning with repetition
Articulate the models
identify two extreme and opposing answers to the problem, turning an issue
make the solutions extreme expressions of a core idea.
exploring a fundamental tension between two options tends to surface enough information to generate new possibilities.
centralization = all development of training programs and content delivery is done at the head office, based on corporate priorities
decentralization = every unit is given the funds to develop or source their own local training, addressing whatever needs are most pressing for them
examine the models
deeply understanding the nature of the problem at hand
Look across the models
look at the critical outcomes of each model and how they are produced
look at the problem again with fresh eyes.
assess the prototypes
generating new possibilities
Test the prototypes
Share the ideas
explore new possibilities
Create ‘prototype integrations
analysis to creation
All solutions will eventually be made obsolete
