Dr David Stevens is generally regarded as one of the world's leading project strategists, particularly in value management, value engineering, risk management, partnering, project alliancing and strategic planning.
He formed Strategic Thinking 10 years ago and since then has been involved in more than 1000 studies and projects with major government and multinational organisations in Australasia, the USA, the UK, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. He believes that we must harness the human mind, especially working in focused groups, as the greatest resource available in the development of businesses and projects. This concept has been applied to a wide range of businesses and projects, from small to large, all with outstanding success.
In Strategic Thinking, Dr Stevens advocates that the formal group problem solving methodologies that he has refined and practised worldwide should be taken from the large government and private sector organisations and applied to small business to dramatically increase profitability.
