Inductive Thinking

We will only know for certain if our theory and execution have worked through a demonstrated outcome.  Until demonstrated, could we ever know for certain how to obtain the improved results that you want?

When only demonstration can explain conclusions, how do we best formulate the theory and originating plan for a new and better conclusion?  Answer = inductive thinking.

In a yet to be demonstrated way, you begin with grounded forms of knowledge as propositions that have been gathered as perceptions in a progressive series of connecting what you do know with where you want to go.

In essence, you grasp these inductive solutions from what has been demonstrated and make reasoned choices to set off from.  These reasoned choices are formulated into First Principles.  The determinate choices are generally acquired through repeated inductions, rather than a single inductive step.  This craft of inductive reasoning (connecting things) and reasoned choices through applied learning is at the heart of continuous improvement and innovation.  This therefore constitutes the genius by which you are able to hit a targeted result that no one else had ever thought of.

Example:  Diabetes

Successfully regulated through the inductive reasoning of connected and reasonable first principles that together explain the answer for treating a debilitating and deadly disease.

1) monitor blood levels

2) supply determined level of insulin

“First Principles requires more than knowing certain key propositions — it requires knowing these propositions as the necessary and explanatory primitive truths from which all our scientific understanding is derived.”   —  Aristotle  —
