Lateral Thinking as a means of teaching Object Think

The process of transitioning to object technology is hard, because object technology is too easy. Yes, there is a new syntax to learn, but the learning effort for a new syntax is trivial. Many projects have however struggled because they underestimated the difficulty of getting developers to use Object Think. This talk identifies some problems that arise from the lack of Object Think and suggests some lateral thinking exercises to try to enable developers to move into the Object paradigm.

This talk was first presented at the Workshop for Object Oriented Design (WOOD) 1998 in Norway. The handout for this talk (309k PDF).
