About the Author

Dr. Bruce Oberhardt is a sought-after biomedical engineer and entrepreneur, known for promoting creative thinking and for successfully spearheading first-of-a-kind technological developments in the fields of cardiovascular disease, blood diseases, and diabetes and helping to solve key problems in technology developments in the cancer field.

Dr. Oberhardt's latest passion is conducting workshops and training others in techniques for solving complex problems.

During his career, he has tackled and solved many complex biomedical technology and business problems and participated in many successes. He has seen much of what works and what doesn't. However, since he had not seen much written on how to develop superior problem solving skills and specifically to bring them into the complex landscape of a business, especially if there is an entrenched culture, he decided to write about his experiences. This was a main driver for him to write "Dragonfly Thinking."

As Albert Einstein says, "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."
