Abstract: Dr. Howard Eisner will be presenting an overview on his new book “Thinking: a Guide Book for Systems Engineering Problem-Solving”. He’ll be discussing some 15 new ways of thinking and applications to systems engineering, including: Inductive Thinking, Deductive Thinking, Reductionist Thinking, Out-of-the-Box Thinking, Systems Thinking, Design Thinking, Disruptive Thinking, Lateral Thinking, Critical Thinking, Fast and Slow Thinking, and Breakthrough Thinking. With these thinking skills, the systems engineer will be better able to tackle and solve new and varied types of problems.
