Thinking Dimensions, a consulting firm that promotes the KEPNERandFOURIE methodology of problem solving and decision making, offers a MindManager Pro 7 add-in called the ThinkingWorks Wizard that helps users to make better busines decisions using this proprietary process. Utilizing a pop-up dialog box, the wizard walks users through a four-step process that consists of:
- Stating the purpose
- Clarifying the solution requirements
- Evaluating alternatives and
- Making a choice or confirming a particular solution
At each step, the user inputs their answers to the wizard’s questions. At the end of this process, this data is entered into a MindManager map, providing you with a visible record of your problem solving process.
You can download a 21-day trial version of the ThinkingWorks Wizard add-in from the developer’s website; at the end of that time, it will cost you (Canadian) $29.99 to continue using it.
