Despite humble beginnings, Chuck Kepner has had an immeasurable influence and far-reaching impact on corporate problem-solving and decision-making, both nationally and on the global stage. His ground-breaking work and methodologies on strategic thinking have been applied everywhere from NASA and the CIA to prominent organizations throughout the world. Kepner’s methods were adopted by NASA and proved instrumental in the famed rescue mission of Apollo 13’s astronauts.
The KEPNERandFOURIE method of critical thinking, developed in partnership with Matthys Fourie, has expanded worldwide. Organizations that have applied and adopted these methodologies have experienced remarkable results in areas ranging from IT troubleshooting to corporate decision-making at the highest levels.
The OnTrack International family send condolences to our colleague Thys Fourie, as well as the family and friends of Dr Charles Kepner.
