Dr. Lisa Ferguson presents
"Introduction to the Thinking Processes"

About the Webinar: The TP are a powerful set of methods for improving your critical thinking skills. The tool set consists of generic processes for addressing what to change, what to change to and how to cause the change. This webinar provides an overview of each of the TP tools: the evaporating cloud, current reality tree, future reality tree, negative branch reservations, prerequisite tree, transition tree, strategy and tactic trees, the plus and minus-minus buy-in processes, and the four viewpoints of change.
