Welcome to thinkibility!  

Thinkers’ Prescriptions

for Improving Your Thinking about Thinking,

Creativity, Innovation and Design

A CURIOUS and CREATIVE person gets the same pleasure from exploring risks and searching for opportunities.  Thinkibility will open your mind to explore thinking from a range of perspectives.

Through fun and thoughtful examples and exercises, Gijs and Asa will explore ideas from sociology, psychology, social psychology, mathematics and business studies.

“Imagine that you start to discover things you did not know existed in the deep dark sea. You have just checked your equipment. You are confident because you have trained the skills needed to survive in these harsh surroundings. Still you are curious and a bit nervous as always when you think dive. Happy Exploration!”

Åsa Jomård

To surprise, inspire and explore experiences is at the heart of everything Åsa does. Her arsenal of powerful thinking tools have helped her to develop ideas to support adults to overcome their fear of exploring new ways to deal with real life situations. She has also taught children to use creative thinking tools to solve problems on a daily basis, as well as in academic situations.

She is passionate about the environment and uses biomimicry to explore new ways in which nature’s successes can inspire the development of innovations. She has written material for young children about biomimicry as well as articles in magazines. Prior to this she studied Psychology, Sport Psychology, Pedagogics, English Literature, Reading, and Reading and Learning Disability. Her thesis Possible Solutions to Possible Problems concerned cognitive development in children. She is co-blogging at Thinkibility where she explores thinking, creativity, innovation and design.

Gijs van Beeck Calkoen 

Again and again, Gijs is surprised about the power of systematic application of thinking techniques to innovation. It is therefore not surprising that he established the Practice for Bold Thinking. in 2003. The Practice for Bold Thinking helps companies, research labs and governments to solve stubborn problems, search for new concepts and products, and focuses their organization on innovation. Prior to this he was the Director of Naval Research. In that position he was also Executive Secretary of the Maritime Innovation Forum, a national partnership between eleven industries, laboratories and governments. He studied electronics and business administration. He contributes regularly to the blog http://www.thinkibility.com .
