#xpman 79.5 – 6 thinking modes for getting you unstuck, with @SalFreudenberg

with 2 comments

We have special, extra xpmanchester session this month, a talk from Dr Sallyann Freudenberg, who happens to be up in Manchester on the 16th of January.

This talk is about “stuckness”. It all stemmed from a troubled team I was asked to visit a few years ago. They had great technical knowledge but some of them seemed to find solving problems tricky, and they rarely if ever thought about their own ways of thinking. As they never zoomed out to consider a change of approach, it took them a long time to come up with a solution. A really long time.

In this talk we will look at six different thinking modes that can help you to “go meta” on your problem solving. Once you know what they are you have a way of identifying your current approach and the option of picking a more suitable one for the problem you are working on.

Please note that this is NOT on our regular day of the second Thursday, and it is NOT at Madlab!

You will need a ticket to get in

  1. I just read Dr Freudenberg’s blog post on these 6 thinking modes. I would *love* to go to this talk but I can’t make it. Will the talk be available online afterwards? Is there any other recommended reading on this topic?

    • Hey Justin,

      Can’t promise anything but we’ll see what we can do. If it’s recorded we’ll post a link from the blog.
