Do you have a really tough UNSOLVED problem, issue or challenge you need solved?

Are you looking for a better way of dealing with them to help you open up the alternatives and in the process, bring new and deeper insight to help you move forward?

Then you need to know about the FOCUSED framework!

Here are three (3) simple steps on how to use the seven dice of the FOCUSED framework:

 

 

STEP 1

Think of an UNSOLVED problem, issue or challenge you are currently facing

 

 

STEP 2

Why was the FOCUSED framework invented?

We live in a VUCA world where our environment is very VOLATILE, UNCERTAIN, COMPLEX and AMBIGUOUS. The FOCUSED framework is designed to help complicate our understanding in positive ways and in the process help open up the alternatives to our predicaments.

Key takeaways about the FOCUSED framework 

The "Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D." philosophy is a strategic thinking framework designed to help prepare the next generation of thought-leaders for a complicated world. It is a tool designed to help you open up the ALTERNATIVES to UNSOLVED problems, issues and challenges.

So what does FOCUSED stand for?

The FOCUSED framework was invented in 2009 where we surveyed 400+ business students and faculty on a burning question: “what is one thing our students need to do, and if they did that one thing, it would take their learning to a higher level?” The key findings culminated in the importance of the “Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D.” philosophy where each letter represents a critical competency much sought-after in the real world today.
