Since the 37th Anniversary in November we have been rethinking the SOT. Time for a transformation. During that time the SOT site was also seriously hacked and that new experience added to our rethink.
We have had many insights over the years as a result of offering online training to millions of people around the world and we are satisfied that our mission since 1979 (to get thinking as a school subject taught on the curriculum) has been well achieved.
The main insight that stands out above all the others is the value of the DFQ (Daily Feedback Question) Method which we use to develop lateral thinking skills. The insight is this:
the more DFQs the student does the greater the lateral thinking skill and the greater the return on the training investment of time and fees.
