1985, The Hague (Netherlands), by Edward de Bono.


Provide a body which will focus directly on thinking; use triangular thinking - acting as third party or overseer - as a creative input in conflict resolution through a designed outcome mode consisting of exploratory mapping followed by creative design; act as a cooperative yet independent mediator and communication channel providing a range of alternatives at any point, thus reducing damaging and wasteful crises in problem solving.

Available with paid subscription only.


Intended to operate in 4 basic ways: (1) Full operation as a design exercise with parties involved in conflict, at their request but in SIPO premises; (2) Parallel operation, where other efforts continue but in negotiation with SITO; (3) Review operation, acting as observer at conflict discussions and providing additional input where relevant; (4) Direct operation on its own account, calling conferences, publishing reports, setting up task forces and thus providing visible options of which parties to an issue - and the public - may take note.
