Thinking process - Thinking process™
The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once said: "If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading."
The power of innovation in business is vital to our survival, and if we fail when it comes to development and introduction of new processes/products, it can be read as customers complains, negative numbers, lost jobs and decline in growth.
Everyone who have tried to work with innovation and change in organizations knows how difficult it is to encourage employees to take ownership if they disagree or do not understand the need for change. Durable results are made only when employees are allowed to influence the process and not see it as a top-down maneuver.
In Quatre we use the term:
Thinking process - Thinking process™.
When you want to create change in processes and organizations, it requires a combination of knowledge about behaviors and genuine curiosity, also at the logical level and the emotional/intuitive side. Here we are working with Edward de Bono's "6 Thinking Hats®". First, we start with the way we think and overcome the obstacles and prejudice that might arise. We then address the product or workflow to be changed and start thinking in processes.
Out of this arises a synergy of positive results and a better bottom line.
