Today, delivering real competitive advantage requires new ways of learning, thinking and functioning. Traditionally, learning focuses on knowledge, information and data that are now readily available on-line. Reasoning skills – for identifying the right knowledge, information and data and then correctly using it – are not taught. Professionals develop and refine their reasoning skills on their own during their education and through years of experience.
We at MIP have developed a proprietary process – called Thought Process Optimization® (TPO) – for capturing and disseminating expert reasoning strategies. Such a process was previously thought to be impossible. Once captured with TPO, expert reasoning strategies can be disseminated, learned and put into practice within a few days rather than being developed through years of trial and error.
