We’ve solved the Big Five Problems that inhibit organizational growth.

Jim Tompkins earned his Ph.D. from Purdue University in Industrial Engineering in 1972. There were two types of Ph.D. students; the ones who developed tools and the ones who found solutions to problems. Jim was/is a solutions guy.

Throughout his career, he has always started with the problem, seeking the solution.
