Abductive Reasoning in Prospect Research: Critical Thinking and the Logic of the Best Guess

Abductive Reasoning is a form of Logic which Research and Non-profit Professionals utilize everyday. Distinct from both Deductive and Inductive Logic, Abductive Reasoning is also known as the Logic of the Maybe, and involves forming Conclusions from the Information and Data that is known. It is also the ideal kind of logical reasoning for making new Discoveries. Through sharpening your Critical Thinking and Abductive Skills, you can bring a brand-new level of value to the conclusions and consultations you provide as a Prospect Research professional. Through easy to understand, yet fascinating examples, and a surprising amount of humor, this presentation gives you all the tools you need to energize, inform and re-think your approach to Prospect Research.

Date: Wednesday, November 9th

Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 PST

Presented by Cayden Hawk Ferrin, Associate Director of Prospect Development at the University of Wyoming Foundation
