Who or what is Integrative?
“Integrative Thinking is a field in applied mind science which was originated by Graham Douglas in 1986. He describes Integrative thinking as the process of integrating intuition, reason and imagination in a human mind with a view to developing a holistic continuum of strategy, tactics, action, review and evaluation for addressing a problem in any field”. As you see Integrative is not just another pretty word or IT acronym, you can find more on this philosophy on wikipedia.
