In 2016 the World Economic Forum (WEF) published its Future of Jobs report.
The report highlights the skills needed to thrive in these changing conditions. Out of the top 10 skills "complex problem solving" is ranked No.1.
But here's the thing. If complex problem solving is the No.1 skill...where do we find the problems that need solving?
We asked the same question and couldn't find the answer. This is why we conceived the BUMPCONDUCTOR concept.
The BumpConductor® is being developed to help teams solve complex problems. It covers all key processes and includes a framework, method, and technology platform (including apps).
We aim to help problem solving organisations find & solve the most valuable BUMPS!
BUMPS are Big Unsolved Meaningful Problems worth Solving®. It provides a unique way to think about complex problem spaces.
BUMPS are the foundation block upon which we are building our solutions
We hope it can also help you better visualise, analyse, and communicate complex problem scenarios.
We have extensive experience working with leading international businesses in areas such as strategy, delivery, and complex problem analysis. Comfortable at strategic and tactical levels we can work across organisations & ecosystems to deliver maximum impact. We can ask and answer questions such as:
Many existing problem solving techniques are limited and are often used at tactical levels e.g. lean six sigma process improvements. We think it is time for a new approach - a new operating model for 'Problem Solving Organisations'(PSOs).
We call this new operating model 'Bumponomics®'.
Bumponomics® will help PSOs consistently capture value by capturing BUMPS®. It will create better synergies between strategy & execution, and will help alignment both within and across organisations. It covers key topics such as:
Expertise and techniques only go so far. We want to take problem solving to new levels. We are developing a technology platform to detect and address problems across complex value chains. Our first application (a progressive web app) is currently under development.
Whenever you encounter BUMPS®, think BUMPCONDUCTOR®
