Crafty Bastards Think Differently
What if we stopped scanning the horizon with binoculars and began instead examining our own decision-making and behavior through the most powerful of microscopes? I think that would change the way wars are fought, the kinds of products we see on the shelves, the kinds of movies that get made, the way police officers are trained, the way couples are counseled, the way job interviews are conducted, and on and on.”
~Malcolm Gladwell, Blink, 2005
Crafty Bastards Workshops
History has educated us about the nature of light and the speed at which it travels. At one juncture, white light was considered the absence of color when in fact it is the combination of all colors, which become visible when refracted. Like the refracted light, each has shades that require a deeper examination to reveal the true spectral composition. Similarly, Crafty Bastards Workshops (CBW) focus on an intensive discovery process to identify and exploit the full spectrum of ideas. Our workshops provide a highly specialized and dedicated environment of learning and discovery, as well as an in-depth exploration and exploitation of the myriad highly complex problem-sets that threaten global stability and economic resiliency. These critically important issues range across an ever-widening spectrum, from disease to conflict to infrastructure warfare. The modus operandi of CBW is the combining—and, often, recombining—of disparate talent and highly knowledgeable expertise at a visceral level. The goal of each CBW is to identify strategic approach vectors that are realistic, comprehensive, and actionable.
