Abstract

In an age where the digital machine can outperform the human mind at any task that can be represented as an algorithm, Integrative Thinking is the best revenge. The author argues that this particular kind of thinking still matters to success in business, and that figuring out how to do more of it requires a new conceptualization of thinking in terms of its integrative functions - the functions that produce successful integration across knowledge and interactional domains and confer agency upon decision makers. He describes three types of integrative thinking and why they stand out for the value they create: substantive integration; interactional integration and agency (the integration of seeing, feeling, thinking and action.)
