Joint Problem Solving (JPS)

This is a process for finding better solutions with others through the application of a disciplined thinking and communication model.

The uniqueness of the JPS approach is that it incorporates the best of many management and leadership theories used in different parts of the world. It is also a product of over thirty years of testing and application in a wide range of South African organisations.
