about

"The author makes a compelling case that we often start solving a problem before thinking deeply about whether we are solving therightproblem. If you want the superpower of solving better problems, read this book." --Eric Schmidt, former CEO, Google

Are you solvingthe right problems?Have you or your colleagues ever worked hard on something, only to find out you were focusing on the wrong problem entirely? Most people have. In a survey, 85 percent of companies said they often struggle to solve the right problems. The consequences are severe: Leaders fight the wrong strategic battles.

Everywhere you look, the waste is staggering. As Peter Drucker pointed out, there''s nothing more dangerous than the right answer to the wrong question.

There is a way to do better.

The key isreframing, a crucial, underutilized skill that you can master with the help of this book. Using real-world stories and unforgettable examples like "the slow elevator problem," author Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg offers a simple, three-step method - Frame, Reframe, Move Forward - that anyone can use to start solving the right problems. Reframing is not difficult to learn. It can be used on everyday challenges and on the biggest, trickiest problems you face. In this visually engaging, deeply researched book, you''ll learn from leaders at large companies, from entrepreneurs, consultants, nonprofit leaders, and many other breakthrough thinkers.

He has shared and refined his reframing method with clients like Cisco, Microsoft, Citigroup, Time Warner, AbbVie, Caterpillar, Amgen, Prudential, Union Pacific, Credit Suisse, Deloitte, theWall Street Journal, and the United Nations.
