Thanks for telling us about the problem. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I find it helps me develop focus or find a new way of looking at a problem, and I find the process great for brainstorming ideas as well.

Problems come in all shapes and sizes, yet most have common characteristics that can be addressed with the techniques found in this book.
Eye-opening on how adding structure to a group discussion can help to quickly arrive at concrete results.

I’m not sure if I didn’t really internalize the tools in this book, or if it just wasn’t what I wanted. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

This is his third book. There were 4 pages of diagrams that did help with modeling some problem solving. You have the Post-Up and Swap-Out for general information gathering and sorting, the Top-Down and Bottom-Up for either generating iwth coalescing data, and you have the Information Map and the Action Map, either for finding commonality between the disparate or creating flow.
