eThink Enterprise—our collaborative solution—is a client-server application designed to support the integration of Kepner-Tregoe processes into an organization to improve its operations. The eThink Enterprise application focuses on:

  • Enabling groups to generate ideas and collect data about an issue
  • Integrating the use of the Kepner-Tregoe rational processes into work routines
  • Coordinating and monitoring activities while working through an issue
  • Increasing the access to and use of structured knowledge by members of your organization faced with the same or similar issues to resolve

eThink Workgroupsour network solutionis designed to support small teams integrating Kepner-Trepoe processes into their approach to solving problems and making decisions. This solution allows users to share records created by others.

eThink Desktop—our single user application—is used for supporting the user of Kepner-Tregoe processes. It contains many of the features of eThink Enterprise without the capabilities for collaboration and multi-user access. eThink Desktop is ideal for individual users and for facilitating problem-solving or decision-making teams by projecting eThink from the laptop. It also offers a good introduction to eThink for organizations considering an eThink Enterprise system.
