People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them

The Gordian Dynamic Framework

If you want methodology hire a consulting firm – if you want a solution engage The Gordian Institute. Difficult, complex problems are not solved through the lens of a singular methodology. A “proprietary methodology” ensures only one thing – static thinking resulting in blind spots. The most difficult problems are best resolved by testing outcomes across a variety of scenario models, and cross-platform, multidisciplinary frameworks.

  • The Applied Creative ThinkingTM (ACT) experience blends Hollywood creative sessions with national security war-gaming to create immersive pressure cookers with your outcomes in mind
  • The ACT method is based on our evolving understanding of the brain as well as the disruptive techniques that advance creativity in the most competitive environments
  • The ACT approaches problem solving by challenging assumptions and disrupting familiar, comfortable modes of thinking.
  • The ACT process blends our best thinkers with yours to create a diverse pool of perspectives and thinking. By surrounding a problem, we deliver transformative insights and divergent solutions.

We use abstraction, agile and bespoke practices, adaptive creative thinking, brainstorming, divergent thinking, algorithmics, clinical and cognitive reasoning, deconstruction, design thinking, introspection, behaviorism, simulation, root cause analysis, cultural and psychological analysis, systems thinking, and more. We don’t care much about which paths we travel, but we care greatly about getting to the right outcome.
