L'usage des post-il est devenu presqu'un incontournable lorsqu'on anime des travaux d'équipe. Je m'en sers beaucoup. Il donne de très bonnes idées

Common tools used in uncommon ways Sept. 14 2001
By Linda Zarate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As an IT Consultant I am always looking for different methods to solve problems. I found this book to be simple but yet valuable.
When I first started reading this book it took me back to a book called "Visualizing Project Management" where the authors Forsberg, Mooz and Cotterman use the process of "Cards on the Wall" technique to encourage group thinking and visually determine dependencies.
This book introduces an effective way to solve problems with Post-it® Note. It starts off by showing simple key principles: (1) Chunking; capturing small information of data, (2) Problem Patterns, arranging and determining relationships, (3) Guiding decisions and keeping clear objectives, and (4) the *FOG* factor (Facts, Opinions, Guesses).
The core of the book provides 6 easy to use methods: (1) Post up, (2) Swap sort, (3) Top-down Tree, (4) Bottom-up Tree, (5) Information map and (6) Action Map. Note that "Information map" has nothing to do with Information Mapping®, which is both a registered trademark and different method owned by Information Mapping, Inc.
These methods are represented graphically with many examples to help you determine which method is best suited to find the solution for complex problems.
What I found most helpful in this book was the step-by-step procedures in every chapter. Every method has a clear definition of what it is and how and when it should be used. Grasping these methods will paint a clear picture towards the direction of a solution. I recommend this book to those that are looking for an effective, yet simple, way of solving problems.

A wonderful introduction to systems thinking Dec 11 2001
By Michael Tobis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a real wonder.
In a very friendly way, and without resorting to any technology beyond sticky notes, it introduces several concepts of computer science and systems engineering.
It can be used as a brainstorming tool, but it can also be used by us programmers as a gift to the non-programmers in our lives. It can serve as an exposition of what it is we do all day when we aren't cursing irritating APIs and OS misfeatures. This is about the part of our jobs that we love and that we have so much trouble explaining.
I'm delighted it's still in print. I love oddball books in general, and this is a great example. It really delivers much more than it claims to.
Don't hesitate for a minute to buy this one.

Constantly recommending this book to others Nov. 2 2006
By Michael Michalko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm the author of "Thinkertoys: A Handbook of Creative Thinking Techniques," and other books on creative thinking. As such, I read pretty much everything that's published that can be useful in facilitating creative thinking workshops and seminars. I find the ideas in this book fun,useful and extremely effective. I'm constantly recomending it to people looking for ways to become more creative in their personal and business lives.

Very Light Reading Feb. 7 2008
By Stephen J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of using rapid prototyping in a variety of ways - from everything from designing software products to building consensus in meetings and setting priorities. There was nothing new in this book that a smart person with the general idea wouldn't be able to come up with on their own. There is a lot of white space in the book and many rudimentary ideas are explained in painful detail. No case studies and really only one application (building consensus and prioritization in meetings). The contents of the book might be better contained in a five page pamphlet.

Practical, easy to use book June 16 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provides six easy to use methods for facilitating decision making and getting everyone involved in working through solutions. I keep this book in my briefcase for use at any time - don't let the name of the book fool you, it's about quick methods for problem solving using Post It Notes to help you. I keep referring back to the book time and again. I highly recommend it.
