Ich arbeite nicht methodenblind sondern versuche Funktionen von Problemen zu verstehen und Lösungen kooperativ zu erarbeiten. Hierbei schaue ich insbesondere auf die Kommunikation, die in Teams und Organisationen zu beobachten ist um das daraus wirksame Lösungen / Ideen zu kreieren. Entscheidungsprozesse im komplexen Umfeld bedarfen eines vernetzen Entscheidens.
