"The new IWB®
is more intuitive, user-friendly and easier to navigate.
More significantly, my experience is that the sum of the
whole is greater than that of individual enhancements. These
improvements have "super-charged" my ability to generate
novel and innovative approaches to complex and seemingly
baffling problems. The tighter integration of the software,
coupled with the enhanced set of "operators" creates a
seamless pathway to raw innovation."
