Learn to Think Well, Together
Workshops that improve your ability to think, learn and lead.
As technologists, we craft knowledge. Constructing something whole and actionable from abstract ideas requires conceptual integrity. Unfortunately, we are truly terrible at creating or maintaining conceptual integrity … unless we are supported by practices. Fortunately, writing is the practice of crafting conceptual integrity.
Linear thinking helps us deliver software. As relational complexity increases, we need to think (and act) nonlinearly. Nonlinear thinking (aka systems or pattern thinking) helps us make decisions in the midst of uncertainty. This course explores practices and skills that cultivate and maintain conceptual integrity. Which is, according to Fred Brooks, “the most important consideration in systems design.”
