One of our project managers' Spiritus Rector has passed away

Vaduz, Liechtenstein, June 10, 2021

Twenty years ago I was delighted to announce that Dr.  Edward de Bono will be the keynote speaker at our world congress for project managers "Berlin 2002 - Making the Vision Work".
Ocean with fog. [1]
De Bono wrote, among other things, 60 books (which have been translated into more than 40 languages), lectured in over 50 countries and was responsible for three television series.  He was one of the most influential thinkers of our time.  His ideas and advice have been sought and valued by governments, leading companies, and non-for-profit organisations, as well as our IAPM International Association of Project Managers.
Dr.  Edward de Bono, the father of ‘Lateral Thinking’ (a term that found its way into the Oxford English Dictionary) and, among other things, the inventor of the creative method ‘Six Thinking Hats’, a busy promoter for creative thinking and a friend of us project managers, passed away three weeks after he celebrated his 88th birthday on June 9, 2021.
It was always a great pleasure and inspiration to work with him and soak up his ideas.  Now we can only bow down to his achievements and honor him and his work in memory.
