OpenBook Consulting is a division of OpenBook Learning, Inc., a leading educational software and consulting company. OpenBook has developed a model and an automated survey for uncovering individual Cognitive Preference, which describes how humans prefer to use their brains. The survey provides customized advice on how to best approach learning, decision-making and collaboration challenges. Through OpenBook’s partnership with LSI, we will be able to make this tool available to our customers. We will also make the OpenBook Cognitive Preference model a part of the family of models supported by the Lean Systems Framework.
