What I do

... and what can I do for you

What is a Problem

A problem is the distance between an undesirable effect and a most desirable one. This is the most important concept here. We must be aware of this distance, clearly define what is undesirable, what is more desirable which, by the way, can be much more that simply mitigate the undesirable effect.

Kickstart Activity

Solving problem is a tough activity. When people deal with problems are scared, stressed, strongly focused on the problem itself. They say things like "I can't see how to do this" or "I can't figure out this" or "I don't see what that meas" and if we try to make them open their minds they say "not now, not now I've a problem here..." in other words, they are stuck! A robust strategy can easily overcome these barrier and make people see the problem with different eyes, understand where they are stuck and start to work their way to the solution.

Visual Problem Solving

A shared problem is half solved. A big part of my job is to deal with problems. To do that I created from scratch my own system by mashing up mature methoidology like TRIZ, ToC and Design Thinking with Sketchnote. The result is VPS (Visual Problem Solving) a lightweight, easy to use, effective and (why not) fun methodology to overcome empasses, kickstart solving activities and "keep the balls rolling".

I wrote a book

In 2016 I did learn about #the100DayProject on The Great Discontent website. This book is the byproduct of that project. Once finished, I had a bunch of tutorials and find myself going back to them to draw inspiration and ideas from. I must quote my mentor Mike Rohde: this book is not about Art, is about Ideas. This book is basic and at low cost. I want people to take notes ON my book, add colors, add features and details, writing on the pages and without regret, without the fear of ruining an expensive book. I want children to play with it, tear the pages off, destroy it without their parents getting mad.

The book is on sale here:
