All of our clients who have introduced structured thinking disciplines to their teams face a similar challenge: ensuring their team members use the techniques after they get back to their desks.
Clients consistently find that the challenge of returning to over-inflated email in-boxes and the need to catch up on time spent out of the office blunts the enthusiasm for putting new skills into practice. And, as we all know from personal experience, the longer we leave applying the skills after the session, the less likely we are to do it well if at all.
This pack outlines simple and proven techniques that you can apply either as a whole. or one at a time, to boost the the likelihood that your team members will put their structured thinking skills into practice.
If you see your teams applying any of the techniques listed below, you will know this pack is for you:
• Spreading all of the pages created during a project over the boardroom table and then walking around cherry picking key ones and then putting them barely changed into the final pack
• Building the pack one page at a time during the project and then "whooshing the titles together" to create a contents page
• Describing the work the team did rather than clearly articulating a cohesive set of recommendations
• Team leaders – partners included – accepting that they will have to redo the pack at the eleventh hour as this is easier than getting the team to do it themselves
This pack has been prepared by a team of communication specialists who are passionate about helping their clients create clarity in their problem solving and communication more easily and more often.
Trained in these disciplines as communication specialsits at McKinsey & Company, they now coach and train consultants and strategy teams on a range of communication issues primarily across Australia and the Asia Pacific.
They also help teams to consistently and effectively get the most out of structured thinking disciplines. After all, attending a training session is rarely enough.

"One of the great discoveries that I have made for my business is the Flevy library of training materials.
As a Lean Transformation Expert, I am always making presentations to clients on a variety of topics: Training, Transformation, Total Productive Maintenance, Culture, Coaching, Tools, Leadership Behavior, etc. Flevy usually has just what I need to make my point.
It is well worth the money to purchase these presentations. Sure, I have the knowledge and information to make my point. It is another thing to create a presentation that captures what I want to say. Flevy has saved me countless hours of preparation time that is much better spent with implementation that will actually save money for my clients."
