Courses and Consulting:
Better Problems, Massive Impact

Problem Wisdom is a singular, world-class curriculum and consulting model for people who do business differently. You’re the visionaries committed to resolving global challenges by respecting a matrix of social, environmental, and economic priorities.

Some of you may be social enterprises or benefit corps teams. Others are entrepreneurs, impact investors or in development agencies. Welcome.

Together we craft a deliberate, cogent problem through Problems-First Thinking. You will learn how to use the problem to identify key stakeholders and secure investors, properly scale the project, and collaborate in beneficial partnerships. We use problem design to help you clarify your objectives and magnify your influence – from the beginning.

Master Classes

Our live online master classes are designed for professionals that want to put Problem-First Thinking into practice.

Problem-First Thinking is both a mindset and series of pragmatic actions that translate the power of business into long-term impact for the communities your serve.

When you get the problem right:

Funders look forward to working with you because you are effective, collaborate as a team, and can stay on mission.

You draw in the right partners.

You leverage the optimal scope and scale of the problem.

You prepare the best possible problem with the community for the outcome you both envision.

The problem becomes a disciplined pursuit that helps lives get better.

Problem-First Thinking is formidable edge.
