Convergent Thinking & Decision Making: Three Archetypes Every Manager Should Know
We presented one of our Boot Camps at continuing education event for the American Production & Inventory Control Society (APICS). This work was later published in IEEE Engineering Management Review and is available as a peer-reviewed article.
Strategy Development: DoD Counterinsurgency Simulations
Created a full simulation of ISIS in Syria & Iraq that could test intervention policy options in isolation, combination, and at different timing windows. Simulation results identified key system archetypes and paradigms commonly occurring in counterinsurgency which can assist in training commanders and operational planners.
Operational Effectiveness: Lean Six Sigma Deployment Paradigm
We worked with a military command deploying Lean Six Sigma to understand what conditions led to sustainable deployments versus unsuccessful ones. We mapped stakeholder mental-model into persona archetypes and linked them into a paradigm to show how culture, behaviors, and management decision making combined to determine deployment success.
