The globe is being re-engineered rapidly. Our businesses of today are not what they used to be even a decade back. Our existing methods of thinking – based on analytic and logical methods developed over last couple of centuries are suddenly looking in-effective in the new world of increasing globalization, increasing complexity and unprecedented pace.
The problem solver is in a complex web of decision dependencies and fuzzy end of decision complexity. This workshop gives a comprehensive exposition to Lean Inventive Systems Thinking (LIST) framework developed after successful experimentation in multiple domains. This is a potent framework for collective problem solving using five key thinking dimensions – these are Lean Thinking, Inventive or Design thinking and Systems Thinking besides the traditional Logical and Analytical thinking. It has already proved its worth in designing new products and services, improving overall productivity, reducing cycle time, designing relevant solutions needed by customers, generating Patentable Inventions and minimizing stress on the employees. Some of these cases will be shared in the workshop.

If you, your team, your organization or your business is
·        Impacted by rapid increase in Globalization?
·        Impacted by explosive increase in complexity?
·        Overwhelmed by continuous pressure to think “out of box”?
·        Faced with decision paralysis due to information de-coherence?
·        Feeling the heat of unknown competitors doing unprecedented things to eat away your business?

If most of your answers are YES, this workshop will help you find answers.

Do you think that
·        “Decision Making” is your one of your teams’ core strength?
·        “Problem Solving” and “Innovation” are embedded in your teams’ attitude?
·        Your team manages to avoid getting into crisis most of the time?
·        You know the value that you are creating or delivering to your customer?

If most of your answers are NO, this workshop will help you find answers.

The sessions will be interactive. There will be sharing of knowledge by the facilitator. The participants will be engaged in discussions and hands on exercise. The sessions will be aided with ppt for better understanding of concepts and a workbook will be distributed to the participants.
