Abstract:

"In this acclaimed American/Japanese collaboration, two international scholars and consultants reveal the results of their ground-breaking studies: how the most intuitive and creative leaders and organizations solve problems." "Authors Nadler and Hibino discerned seven principles or assumptions consistently used by all effective problem solvers. These principles constitute the framework for Breakthrough Thinking, Revised 2nd Edition." "The importance of Breakthrough Thinking cannot be overestimated. Every day, in offices, factories, and homes, people try to solve problems. Yet more often than not, their "solutions" are inappropriate, even harmful. It is the contention of the authors that incorrect thinking is the most fundamental reason for the failures of many enterprises. Here, they show how to correct this." "The Breakthrough Thinking principles are not mere theories. They have been applied and verified scientifically. As a result, they are practiced worldwide by some of the most successful and innovative organizations, ranging from industrial giants like Mitsubishi and Cummins Engine to consultants, hospitals, and small companies."--BOOK JACKET.
