Subject: Solving Problems-II...

Following from my Apr 02, 2017 message:


First, a slight addition to yesterday's start up.

Once we have a problem identified and described, we have to determine the cause.

We may find that the cause is, in fact. another problem -- which means that you need to understand the problem/cause structure before you can determine the corrective action

BTW, I am writing as a student participant in a couple of Kepner-Trego Company one week live-in problem solving seminars back in the late 60's -- with over 50 years of supporting follow-up research.

I believe that Bernie Sanders lost the election because he failed to connect with voters and you will waste a lot of time unless you do -- donations will not help. You must give the voters a good, solid reason to vote Democratic. You must convince the voters that you can solve problems -- a very difficult task if Trump has any success. And it would be more helpful if you work to get the voters more involved.


If you fail to publish an email address. you are restricting communications

You failed to respond to that April message - so, please accept this as a friendly reminder. I could not locate a copy of your latest message on your web site -- so i will quote only one sentence.

"That means the only way to stop Donald Trump

 is to fight back the old fashioned way."

Wrong - Wrong - Wrong - The man got elected (the old fashioned way) -- Right??

The Old Fashioned Way needs the scrap barrel.  People in your position need the ability to solve problems -- to get my support.

to be continued (of course)

I don't provide for comments since that is a system designed to control the communication process -- I do provide an e-mail address!! (Please put a [MYWAY] in your title to get my attention).

(Special Note: My outgoing e-mail is temporarily out-of-order, so I will respond to any e-mails I receive with a post on this web site)

BTW, I am working on a replacement system for individuals -- and I sure could use some help. Please see, a work-in-process.
