Conflict Thinking
as a learning path

Conflict thinking isn’t about evading discord but confronting it head-on. Whether we are dealing with technical intricacies or interpersonal clashes, our approach centers on unearthing transformative solutions that transcend mere compromise. We seek breakthroughs—elegant resolutions that dismantle barriers rather than merely patch them up.

At our core lies the “Game of Conflicts”, a structured methodology we’ve meticulously implemented. Let’s explore its key components:

  • Perspective Analysis:
  • Our journey begins by dissecting conflicts from diverse angles. What parameters can we enhance? What obstacles impede our progress? Which characteristics might suffer if left unaddressed? The game guides users through this multifaceted landscape, prompting introspection. With 50 parameters in play, participants continually evaluate relevance and impact. Surprisingly, the original conflict often morphs when viewed through these varied lenses.

  • Conflict Formulation:
  • In the second phase, the game encourages players to articulate conflicts from different viewpoints. The richness of these descriptions never fails to surprise us. By exploring contrasting narratives, we expand our understanding and uncover hidden facets.

  • Solution Search:
  • Armed with insights from identified conflicts, we curate promising solution principles. These serve as the bedrock for our idea-generation phase. Depending on team preferences, we employ diverse brainstorming techniques. Our toolbox isn’t ordinary—it comprises 46 sophisticated solution principles spanning technical and non-technical domains. These aren’t just tools; they’re catalysts for innovation.

    In summary, our learning path of conflict thinking is threefold: detect, diversify, and innovate. We embrace conflicts as learning opportunities, viewing them through a 360-degree lens. 

    The “Game of Conflicts” propels us beyond conventional thinking, fostering a culture of strategic problem-solving.
