analysed reports on Business/Project Failures or
The main cause of failure was avoidable Thinking Errors made by planning teams. Many mistakes were 'obvious' … in hindsight.
In one £1bn failure we identified 21 Thinking Errors that could have been avoided had the planning teams been Thinking Flexibly and Clearly.
Our research also showed how Flexible, Clear Thinking can be achieved by any team ... if they follow a 4-stage Clear Thinking Process.
We also examined why Communications go wrong, so often, and have developed the world's first Comms Quality Assurance system, AdQA.

|How we conduct our Research||
We analysed literally hundreds of reports in the media and publications on underperforming or failed strategies, plans, projects, innovations, and communications (eg marketing). All the back to the Titanic.
Our research into Whole-Brain Thinking and Communications Quality Assurance, together with our experience of working for, and with, global corporations, has provided a unique insight on business performance.
These insights and lessons are reported in our ongoing Clear Thinking Case Studies (see News). We point out which Thinking Styles were missed or fudged, and where these thinking mistakes happened in the various Business Thinking Processes such as strategising, planning, or decision-making.
Even the cleverest teams made simple, but costly, avoidable Thinking Errors
Communications go wrong, so often, because a formal Quality Assurance system didn't exist ... until we developed AdQA
Many factors affect Business Performance, eg the wrong culture
30 factors affect any Team's performance
Plans go wrong principally because strategy and planning teams make avoidable Thinking Errors. We explain how this happens and how your teams can maximise results and avoid costly mistakes. See Links below.
- we could see exactly which stages in the thinking and
planning processes that thinking errors occurred.
Communications go wrong because:
- communications are inherently ‘iffy’ (“50% of my
ad budget is wasted …”)
There are many factors that affect Business Performance and Team/People’s Performance that are not obvious or not addressed by many organisations. Leadership ability, Thinking skills, and Customer Focus come high on the list.
