Creating the problem-solving nexus

Martin Whitlock, the creator of Mindhenge, practices a problem-solving approach to issues of policy and decision-making. While some consultants specialise in marketing, or taxation, or specific areas of policy, Martin specialises in thinking, or the practical skill of working things out.

Martin can provide creative ("plant") and analytical ("monitor-evaluator") functions to supplement a client's existing team. The presence of these two types creates the "problem-solving nexus" in which analysis of a situation is allied with the creative flair necessary to discern solutions.
