The Edupreneur Roundtable, assembles interested parties to analyze an identified problem while applying intentional, responsive, and active listening, to build trust across various education stakeholder groups. This method works against blanketed “Group Think”, by following a process that: 1) Performs Root Cause Analysis 2) Develops Collaborative Solutions This technique goes beyond critical thinking and employs entrepreneurial thinking in the education sector.
