Solving what’s next is hard.

Biology and culture lead us down a predictable path—with predictable results. Sometimes that’s good. But when you want to define and deliver what’s next—not so much. That’s when you need to think wrong.

The Think Wrong Problem-Solving System goes beyond Design Thinking to help you forge a bolder path. We mash up user-centered design with the scientific method and top up with a dollop of behavioral science to help you invent solutions that escape the status quo.

Our Think Wrong Master Classes are intense, on-your-feet learning through doing. They are exhilarating rides that leave participants pumped up and ready to use their new skills and tools to take on the tough challenges and exciting opportunities that come with imagine, invent, and build what’s next.


Our Think Wrong Master Classes offer a comprehensive set of training and coaching opportunities.

Who our classes are for.

Imagining, building, and operating what’s next is a team sport. No one role is more important than the other. Learning a common language, frameworks, tools, and techniques makes it possible to achieve together things that none of us can accomplish alone.


Shepherds. Those of us who create environments and cultures conducive to innovation and positive change. 

Outlaws. Those of us who reject the status quo, forge bold new paths, shake things up, and invent what’s next. 

Scouts. Those of us who help Outlaws navigate the obstacles, and find valuable resources, so that they can invent what’s next—with our guidance.

Sheriffs. Those of us who ensure that things run as smoothly as they possibly can—whether that’s operating what is, or inventing what’s next.

Posses. Those of us who get things done and protect our organizations and communities from unnecessary disruption—today and tomorrow.
