Do you know what this is?

Was talking to a coworker about my growing awareness of my desire to get into team problem solving, and she went off like a fire-cracker. Seems there was some sort of special on TV recently about a company in California that takes a very unorthodox, creative approach to a large diversity of design and problem solving projects that are brought to them. The program shows their brain-storming sessions, and describes the office environment (paper-wad fights, strange objects hanging from the ceiling, etc.) and talks at length about the process they use for developing a project. She first thought maybe it was a report on 20/20 or some similar kind of news magazine, but maybe it was a PBS special, like an episode of NOVA. Have you seen this? ------------------ Jacque

Jacque I saw that, believe it or not! It is exactly as your chum stated. They pay big bucks for this thing, and as I recall it was on 20/20. Perhaps you can e-mail abc or go to their website http://www.abcnews.com and fish around for 20/20 and get a transcript? It amazed me, this technique and thought if I was in a team situation it would be marvy to participate.

Debra, bless you! Thank you!! Found it! Turns out to have been a Nightline. I've got it on order now. (Rubs hands in anticipation.) [This message has been edited by Jacque (edited August 31, 1999).]
