Without method, there’s madness. To make breakthroughs in performance, products and processes, companies must review their thinking patterns. A methods workshop brings focus to the thinking process: the diagnosis of a situation, the search for solutions, the selection of best options and the planning and implementation of a course of action. A medley of methods is prepared in order to provide a best mix of approach according to the set of challenges that have been identified. The utility of the methodologies is demonstrated and the potential highlighted. Subsequently, a methodology framework is developed that serves to embed the methods into good practices.
