Abstract

What's Your Problem? To Solve Your Toughest Problems, Change the Problems You Solve

Presentation(s) by:
Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg (Harvard Business Review)

Agenda Outline

Harvard Business ReviewModerated Virtual Lab
Speaker details


Abstract

Many organizations often struggle to identify and solve the right problems and the consequences can be severe: Leaders fight the wrong strategic battles. Teams spend their energy on low-impact work. Startups build products that nobody wants. Organizations implement "solutions" that somehow make things worse, not better. Everywhere you look, the waste is staggering. As Peter Drucker pointed out, there's nothing more dangerous than the right answer to the wrong question.

Join this Virtual Lab, wherein Harvard Business Press author Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg will discuss a three-step method - Frame, Reframe, Move Forward - that anyone can use to start solving the right problems. The format of the session will be highly interactive, featuring a mini-lecture, teamwork breakout sessions, and joint debriefing.
