«Why can't I make up my mind?»

«Why can't I make up my mind?»

With this simple question, Roman Tschäppeler, from Switzerland, and Mikael Krogerus, from Finland, who met at the Danish creative school  «The Kaospilots», began their journey into the world of decision making.

The result is the international bestseller "50 Erfolgsmodelle - kleines Handbuch für strategische Entscheidungen" (THE DECISION BOOK - Fifty models for strategic thinking), which uses short texts and clever drawings to guide readers through the theories and methodology of choices. This was followed by numerous other books, which have been translated into 25 languages.

A selection of her best works is now available as a colorful edition: "Small books for big questions" with six differnent titles and topics. Her most recent book, "ZUSAMMENARBEITEN - Ein Wegweiser, um gemeinsam Großes zu erreichen" (THE COLLABORATION BOOK - 44 Ideas for Working Better Together), was published in winter 2022 and, like many of their other books, reached the bestseller lists.

The two feel most comfortable on stage. With just a few strokes, they explain the latest findings from decision-making and team research on a chalkboard in a comprehensible and true-to-life way, and examine the pitfalls of modern working life. With their keynotes, which are as entertaining as they are informative, they have performed over a hundred times, from Comedy Festivals to TEDx, from Atlanta to Zurich.

They write and draw a visual column for Das Magazin, the weekend supplement to Switzerland’s biggest newspapers. They present methods, models and theories that sometimes help you lead a more productive, meaningful life.
