Their goal is not to divide problems into tiny bite-sized morsels, but rather to empower the individual analysts so that they can attack the huge, complex enigmas that we face today. Moreover, thinking tools aim to enable analysts to work together better, bridging gaps in space and time, so that the organization as a whole can learn and grow.
