Course description

An integrative process consistently produces cost-effective solutions, higher performance, healthier living systems, elegant design, reduced time to market, and is a heck of a lot more fun and less frustrating.

So why is it the exception rather than the rule? This course employs case studies to illustrate the integrative process—with its focus on purpose, discovery, and interrelationships—while demonstrating its inherent efficiency, effectiveness… and excitement!

This free lecture includes the one-hour webinar recording, a PDF copy of the slides, additional resources, and access to the discussion board participants can share ideas and ask questions.
