Welcome to the In2:InThinking Network

We appreciate your interest in our efforts to foster "thinking about thinking," which we see as the foundation for thinking, learning, and working together. Our non-profit, fully volunteer organization, was formed in 2001 by a group of students of the work of W. Edwards Deming and related theorists. Through hosting an annual 5-day Forum, our aim is to make thinking about sub-systems, variation, knowledge, and psychology, and their interaction - which comprises Deming's “System of Profound KnowledgeTM (SoPK)" - more conscious. We believe that such thinking about thinking, which we call InThinking, will allow people to better perceive relationships and interdependencies in human endeavors, across all industries, extending to education systems and our government. By improving how we think together, learn together, and work together, we see vast opportunities for making all of our endeavors more valuable, more satisfying, and more joyful.

Beginning in 2002, our Forum Team has designed and hosted annual Forums, ranging in length from 4 days to 6 days and now 5 days. Along the way, we've hosted between 140 and 200 attendees every year, from across the United States, with European participation sometimes as high as 20 attendees. Our registration fee started at $250 in 2002 and has remained at $350 since 2007. This fee covers attendance at our Weekend Conference, which features 4 keynote speakers and 6 presenters in parallel-track sessions, with most meals included. In addition, we offer a wide variety of free sessions in advance of our Weekend Conference. In 2017, we will offer 17 sessions, 15 for free, one with a $15 material fee, with a daily attendance fee of $25. We take great pride in our abilities to attract presenters who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of our attendees and donate their time to our efforts.

As an example of the attendees and presenters we attract, we invite you to enjoy the 6-minute video below, produced by students from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo to document their time with us at our 2010 Forum. From here, we invite you to tour our site, including our Forums pages and Insights pages. Link here to be added to our mailing list for updates on our annual Forum.

You are also most welcome to contact our president, Tim Higgins, by e-mail to learn more about our efforts.
