During his long career, he has shown thousands of managers, architects, engineers, attorneys, advertising people, software developers, and scientists the way to more creative, artful problem solving. This new paper edition of The Art of Problem Solving is perhaps the best example of Ackoff in action. Step by step, this practical guide shows you how to develop an understanding of the art of creative thinking and the design of creative solutions.Using 'Ackoff's Fables"—humorous yet eminently practical parables, based on real problems by real managers -you'll see why solving a problem seldom solves the problem, but why approaching it from a new, unorthodox angle often does. The result is vintage Ackoff controversial, funny, and always on target.If you like to dig beyond simple solutions to imaginative solutions that work this book is for you.RUSSELL L.
