    Course Description

    Plan of action

    Many organisations and careers crumble as a result of a poorly contemplated policy. The policy may have been a great idea but it had not been thought through rigorously enough. Learn a proven methodology to test the strength of an idea before fruition.

    Historical thinking embarrassments

    • A motor car company let an accountant influence thinking styles by estimating the cost of paying out the people who died as a result of a mechanical fault. This was less than the cost of a recall. The company took the advice and is still reeling from the decision.
    • A notorious leader thought it would be advantageous to bring the entire country back to year zero and set about killing all the educated people in the country.
    • In 1900 a politician suggested there was no need for the continued use of patents as everything that needed to be invented had been invented.
    • A hospital’s management team banned random complaints and all complaints had to be emailed. The orderlies did not have email access so the training budget was spent training orderlies to use email. The human resources department was overwhelmed with email complaints from orderlies testing their new email skills and the policy was abandoned.
