Easy to learn
Good for in-person
& virtual teams
The trouble is, we all get stuck navigating complex, new problems.
Even the best teams struggle. In virtual teams, it’s even harder to collaborate and find innovative solutions.
That’s why we made problem solving simple.
FourSight “Mindset” and “Toolset” training are based on 65 years of research in creative problem solving. This simple framework has helped hundreds of teams—from Disney, NASA and Navy Seals—achieve breakthrough results.
- Support in-person and virtual teams
- Increase creativity, innovation and collaboration
- Enhance design thinking, LEAN and agile approaches
- Reduce team conflict
- Get to better solutions faster
