In 1995 they pooled their collective experiences to create a breakthrough approach to problem solving and decision making.  This approach combined rational, intuitive and creative methods that were simpler, easier to use and needed for the demands of how individuals, teams and companies work today.

In 1997 Thinking Dimensions was established and the Problem Solving and Decision Making skills workshops launched and the firm has evolved into a global network focused on moving individuals, teams and companies to better thinking and measurable results.
