Much of training is on skills and rules. So, when workers face problems their capacities are limited. They should be well-equipped to handle the unexpected, unknown and challenges never seen before. Workflow Thinking breaks the dependencies on skills and rules to do unbounded thinking - empowered to fix, solve and improve work issues.

Join the session and download the “Guide to Workflow Thinking.”

This session will cover:
  • What studies show that skills-and-rules-only training, limits workers in problem-solving incidents?
  • What are the practices in training and learning that hinder proper handling of unhappy incidents? 
  • How do we design training and learning programs that goes beyond following rules and knowledge?
  • What needs to be done with outdated policies, procedures, systems, and knowledge and skills ?
  • How should we implement the 4-Step Process for Workflow Thinking?

Attend the session and obtain Ray’s “4-Step Process for Workflow Thinking Template.”
