The second edition of Solve Problems together is now ready to order. Check below for how to get your copy!
One of the most difficult things for organizations is to solve problems collaboratively. People spend too much time trying to solve problems by themselves, sit quietly in meetings, or push their ideas on to others. It is first when we gather people and help them think together that they can start solving the critical and often very complex problems that face our organizations and our world.

With 35 min notice I accepted and I planned an agenda with some of your points in mind. It turned out beautifully, I think!”
“I tried out the first part of the book and it turned out really well. The participants noticed a huge difference, with a much better structure, more was discussed, and decided.”
