Take your Lean problem-solving and critical thinking skills to the next level.
A3 Thinker will help you to systematically frame, analyse and eradicate your most critical problems in your workplace and personal life.
This app features a unique set of 65 brainstorming cards with hundreds of questions designed to guide you in each step of an effective problem-solving sequence.
Learn how to develop a deep, fact-based, and shared understanding of the true nature of a problem, its causes, and how to address them systematically.
It doesn't matter if you prefer writing reports on an electronic template, a whiteboard, or the more traditional paper & pencil.
Keep using what YOU find most effective to gather information, share insights and gain consensus!
A3 Thinker's virtual cards will help you overcome any initial block and prompt you with the right questions when and where you need them most.
"It's like working side-by-side with a trusted sensei."
DEVELOP YOUR CRITICAL THINKING & PROBLEM-SOLVING TALENTS
Use A3 Thinker to frame problems with improved clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, logic, and significance.
Choose a section in your report that needs work, read one or more relevant cards and be prepared to be stimulated and challenged!
As many customers already reported, A3 Thinker will likely more than pay for itself at the first improvement you make.
