Why don’t companies spend more time and resources to develop clear and rational thinking processes for their organizations—and more importantly, employees? First, according to Ray Baxter, CEO of Kepner-Tregoe, is that many organizations don’t fully understand the importance of learning how to think. Another reason is that some executives—who newly understand the power of critical thinking as a business advantage— have the illusion that a “once-and-done” training approach is the way to successful implementation. Finally, according to Baxter, is that executives simply aren’t up to the challenge of implementing the changes that need to be made to transform their companies into thinking organizations.
