A practical, introductory guide to thinking differently. It is not a comprehensive blueprint nor is it designed to make you an expert in thinking. But it will get you started on
a journey of thinking differently, and therefore doing things differently, that we hope continues well into
We have selected concepts and thinking tools that have proven their value, ease, and applicability in a
variety of industries and in over five years of experience with front line teams in various NHS organisations.
We’ll provide you with just enough background theory to help you see why the various thinking tools ask
you to do certain things that might seem a bit odd at first. But the emphasis here is not on dry theory or
abstract concepts. Rather, it is on developing new thinking that leads to new ways of doing.
