On April 8, 2016, I had the honor to meet Prof. Edward De Bono at the Customer Excellence conference in Sliema (Malta), where both of us were speaking. Yes, it was that Prof. De Bono, the father of lateral thinking and the icon of creative thinking; and author of more than 85 books.
At the end of his talk, Prof. De Bono announced his latest work Thinking to Create Value, Bonting.
I was lucky to be given an early (and autographed!) copy of the work.
This post is a summary of the book, and review of it from the perspective of TameFlow.
Since TameFlow is solidly founded on mental models and modes of thinking, I had high expectation of this book.
However, after reading it, I was left with mixed feelings. On the one side, the book truly presents interesting topics, and from an original perspective. On the other side, it appears to be a book that has been written hastily with not too much editorial attention, in particular due to an overwhelming amount of repetition; but there seems to be a reason for it.
