The world explained with a few strokes

Roman Tschäppeler and Mikael Krogerus at their talk at TEDx Danubia in Budapest on practical decision theory

Roman Tschäppeler and Mikael Krogerus manage to captivate any audience. Their keynotes about modern work life are educational, funny and in high demand.

On a chalkboard (but not as boring as a school lecture), they answer eternal questions of work life: How do I make the right decisions? How do you work with people you don't like? What's the problem with meetings? Why does everything always take longer than planned? What is a «good idea»?

They appeal to the intellectual curiosity of the audience and guide them through the world of New Work in a lively and humorous way: It is about decision-making and collaboration, agility and design thinking, leadership and risk management, consensus decisions and feedback.

In short, it's about new life skills. The abilities we need to excel in a digitalized, fragmented and globalized world. The audience will encounter familiar models such as the Pareto principle, the salami tactic or the deep work technique. And lesser-known ones such as the PhD plateau, the Machiavelli matrix or the sock/roof tile problem.

As in their books, Krogerus & Tschäppeler show in their lectures the extraordinary ability to make sense of psychological and scientific phenomena. It is theory in its most practical form: clever, short, visual, applicable - presented with a wink.
