In 2001, after a career in small business management and consulting, Jack decided to say goodbye to solving business problems and hello to solving the most important problem in the world: the environmental sustainability problem. Thwink.org, a small "thwink tank", was founded that year. The mission of Thwink.org is to help solve the complete sustainability problem using the most efficient and effective methods available.
Jack's role in this work has been to apply his training (a BS in Systems Engineering) and his experience in the business world to developing and applying a comprehensive problem solving process. This has led to some novel discoveries and innovative tools, all of which have been published on Thwink.org. Jack, along with assistance from Philip Bangerter, is also the author of the first peer reviewed paper in the world on the subject of systemic change resistance to solving the global environmental sustainability problem.
