Solutions Go In The Recycling Bin, Not The Trash Bucket.

“The effective decision-maker, therefore, always assumes initially that the problem is generic.” - Peter F. Drucker
Solutions Go In The Recycling Bin, Not The Trash Bucket.
Don't toss out your solutions!

There is nothing more frustrating than explaining the same thing over and over again.

You think by the—fourth, fifth or sometimes even sixth time—people would make the effort to write it down somewhere.

Unfortunately, this is just standard operating procedure for most businesses.

“Why are you saving your files there? We have a SharePoint for that.”

“You don’t have to write all those questions down, there’s a PDF you can reuse.”

The problem is not that companies don’t have solutions, it’s that only a select few employees are aware of them, also known as tribal knowledge.

There are unique problems — solvable only through the creation of an original solution.

And then there’s generic problems — solvable through implementing new rule and policy.

Peter F. Drucker, author of The Effective Executive, says that we should always assume that most problems are generic, meaning they are recurring and not part of a one-off thing.

This means they can be resolved with the same generic solution every instance in which the problem occurs.

Let’s say you’re a consultant or service provider and you’ve noticed that tracking inventory is a big pain-point for many of your clients. And let’s say that being the effective executive that you are, you’ve also discovered a solution.

Now, if only there was a way to connect, save and share these two bits of information with the rest of the company.


We built something that does just that.

Here’s how it works:

You’ve noticed that several of your clients struggle with inventory tracking.

Next Step: Submit into Amble as a pain point.

This is Amble’s ‘detailed capture’ form.

You create a solution to this problem using an excel file.

Next Step: Submit into Amble as a solution.

This is Amble’s ‘quick capture’ form.

Now, you need to connect the two so everyone in the company is made aware of the solution.

Next Step: Connect the two concepts via the feed page.

Connections on the Feed Page

That’s it. It’s that easy. Now the whole company has access to this solution.

Most problems are generic and require the same type of resolve.

Recycling saves valuable effort, time, and resources.

Knowledge-sharing is the way of the future.
