Reviewed by Wendy Van den Bulck Just as the whole world is overwhelmed by complexity, here’s Andrew’s latest book, ‘Make Life Simple’. I’d say, brilliant timing…
I met Andrew on two occasions; the SOL World Conference in Frankfurt in 2017 and the SFiO Unconference ‘SF use in Large Scale Contexts’ in 2019, long before he wrote this book. Having read his book, I realise now that in our conversations at these events, Andrew did a lot of what he describes.

Introduced by John Brooker In this case study article, experienced Agile and Solution Focus practitioners Ralph and Veronika relate how they used a Solution Focus approach to help a department in the automotive industry become Agile.
This article describes a thorough and beneficial piece of work, with useful learning for both SF practitioners and those who are interested in using SF to effect agile change. As well it provides a valuable template for those who may wish to carry out a piece of consulting work with SF.

Introduced by Maurice (Mo) Hagar There is much to commend this case study. While the COVID crisis has proven a setback for some, forward-thinking companies like Invitech understand that such crises create opportunities for both Solution Focus (SF) and Agile. As well, Invitech demonstrates the synergies between SF and Agile, of which even forward-thinking companies often fail to take advantage.
As shown here, Invitech’s blended approach addresses and mitigates some of the challenges that organisations often face when pursuing Agile “transformation.
What shines through in this video is Douglas' delight at applying SF to the very traditional Project Management world and seeing how wonderful a difference it can make.
