My name is David J. Sheridan and I am a Professional Problem Solver & Manager.
people really understand what I and my company does so I will outline it.
look for new ways to understand problems which connect to or involves People; and through that
understanding we invent, innovate, design and develop new solutions and applications to work
with those problems. We don't seek to replicate what already exist; we seek to work with problems that
don't have effective solutions and where those problems are increasing in number, size and complexity. This
allows us to redefine solutions and to create new type of solutions that can improve, resolve or better
reality is that we work in a unique space in the Problem and Solution Landscape. A space that most
people avoid, don't know about and pretend doesn't exist. This space is where the too difficult to fix
This unique space is full of complex problems, difficult
challenges, impossible relationships, confusion and all the really difficult and challenging bits of Life, Work,
Personal interactions, Business activities, Organisational and Government challenges.
This space is where the problems that grow in size, complexity and
difficulty are created, nourished and developed; until they are capable of taking on a life and a form of their
This space is the nursery for problems such as Depression, Stress,
Anxiety, Anger, Weight Problems and Obesity Issues.
This space is also the nursery for
Business and Organisational problems such as Productivity, Profitability, Production, Sales and other issues which
cause businesses to falter and to fail.
What we do is we work with these problems, which are often complex;
often have additional parts that no-one is paying attention too and often have relationships which people
don't understand; and we seek to make them better.
To achieve this we developed The Human Algorithm® Project to create new
ways of understanding and working with complex and difficult problems and to create new types of solutions to work
with complex and difficult problems. Our objective is to work with mid to long term goals in mind and not short
term objectives which many solutions and training programmes focus on.
It has taken over 20-years of work to do this and we now have a new
range of world class solutions that we can provide direct and through Licensing, Training and Joint
An example of this is The Genesis Programme for Weight and Obesity
issues, see www.GlobalWeightControl.com and The
Genesis Programmes for Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Anger and other issues that destroy peoples lives. To find
out about The Genesis Programmes contact us. Contact Us
When we work with people, businesses and organisations we work with 3
simple goals in mind:
Improved - Resolved - Better Managed
We have yet to encounter a problem, issue or challenge that affects personal, work, social, business,
organisational or industrial structures; that cannot be Improved, Resolved or Better Managed.
The work that we do and the
solutions that we create can be applied across personal problems, work challenges, social situations
and organisational structures, systems and processes; in any industry or domain where there is any
form of Human involvement. This makes our work and our solutions very flexible and applicable across many
When a problem connects with People and
it has Human involvement; this means that The Human Algorithm® is going to be involved. This is
our area of expertise!
Why is The Human Algorithm® Pathway
We can think of many different solutions and approaches that are applied to
the problems that People have with Behaviours, Activities and Actions; in their Personal, Social, Work and
Organisational activities. These include:
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT); Consultancy; Counseling; Neuro Linguistic
Programming (NLP); Psychotherapy; Wellness; Hypnotherapy; Emotional Intelligence (Ei); Meditation; Recreational
Drugs; Self Medication with alcohol; Acupuncture; Massage; Aromatherapy and the hundreds of other
solutions and remedies that people and organisations use.
If we ask the question: What are each of these different approaches
trying to do?
They are interested in How and Why the Human is living, working, socialising
and managing in the ways that they are; and how this can be influenced, changed and improved.
What they are all trying to influence (whether they know it or
not) is the building blocks of it all: The different component parts that create the driving
forces that helps to create and maintain problems and solutions.
All solutions and approaches are trying to
understand, influence, change and control; How people are comprehending, interpreting, processing,
undertaking, managing, improving and resolving; the How, Why, Where and When, related
to Behaviours; Reactions and Responses to their Thoughts, Emotions, Feelings
We could call this: The Genesis Point. The place from which new and different
behaviours, actions and activities can come. The point at which all problems begin to change and have the
potential to become something else.
This is where we are different. We understand the Genesis Point and what is
required to create the structure, system and processes to achieve and use it. We also understand how to help
people to manage their journey to the Genesis Point and their journey from the Genesis Point into new
behaviours, activities and actions. We use our Genesis Programmes to do this.
We don't consider The Human Algorithm® Pathway to be a Therapy. When used with
individuals it is a Strategic Lifestyle Management Process that can provide an Ecosystem within which
Therapeutic, Medical and other approaches can work. The Human Algorithm® Ecosystem provides a Common
Platform that other approaches can fit into and use; to measure, control and adjust what they
When we use a Genesis Programme it provides the structure, systems
and processes required to understand the problem in a new way and to help the user to achieve and sustain
positive outcomes. See:www.Exceptional-Solutions.co.uk
Why does Problem Architecture matter?
When we understand the Architecture of Problems; we can see that all problems are created by a blend
of Human Algorithms®. This blend forms a malleable foundation stone of What people do and How and Why they do
The HAP Architecture has been designed to provide:
Emotional & Psychological Development &
Strategic Lifestyle Development &
Behaviour Development & Management
Life Skills Development
Business Skills Development
Personal Development & Management
Problem & Solution Matching
Mind & Behaviour Development & Management
A Common Method of Communication and Comprehension; like
Numeracy & Literacy
Developing & Managing a new Skill Set
By understanding Problem and Solution Architecture we can understand and change the blend of people's Human
Algorithm's® and the blend of The Human Algorithm's® of the problem structures; then we can create real and
sustainable improvements and change at both the level of the individual and at scale. Change that is resistant to
However; to do this most effectively we need to be able to get too and work with The Human Algorithm® Genesis
Doing this is where the difficulties are and this is why so many Solutions have a low probability of achieving
change that is sustainable over the medium to long term.
Our Solutions are designed to create "The Condition of Possibility" from which The Genesis Points come.
The Human Algorithm® Pathway and our Genesis Programmes can be used by Adults
and Children across different problems, issues and challenges. Contact Us
Types of Solutions with The Human Algorithm® Project
For many years, my focus has been on achieving
a more complete understanding of problems, that are becoming increasingly complex and difficult to
fix. To achieve this I had to work in new places in the Problem & Solution Landscape; and look to find what was
missing from our current understanding of problems and the solutions that are applied to
What I found is that an increasing number of solutions are focused on the easy parts of problems;
and they ignore the difficult and complex parts. These difficult and complex parts are usually what feeds the
creation of the problems and helps them to grow and develop - we can call this: The Causality of the
In reality; what is happening is that more and more solutions are focused on managing
the obvious Symptoms; they do not seek to understand or address the real Causality because it is
usually complex and difficult to do. This creates a dark and growing void between Causality and
In many instances, the people who provide solutions are unaware of the Causality -
Symptoms - Solutions relationship and they take things at face value. This in turn leads to a more
simplistic understanding of problems and more simplistic solutions being applied.
In reality; an increasing number of Solutions are focused on dealing with Symptoms; without regard
to what created those Symptoms.
It's like trying to remove a tree by cutting off the top of a tree and leaving all
the branches and roots intact; the top can still grow back!
The way that many solutions work, means that the systems and structures that
lead too the creation and development of the problem, remains intact;
and they work against change.
I wanted to find a new way of understanding and working with the dark void
that was created by the complex and difficult things that other people were ignoring.
By working with Causality and the Symptoms they produce in the right ways; we can truly
begin to improve and resolve complex and difficult problems, issues and challenges.
We can then take this knowledge and use it to create and provide Exceptional
Our solutions can be designed to work across the Problem Conduit: they can work with
a problem type; the community of people who experience it; those who live with it and those who
work with those who do - This can produce an end to end solution that can compliment and help to leverage
other solutions. Contact Us
Inclusive: Working with any other Positive Approach that seeks
to Help People and Organisations
The Human Algorithm® Project has developed an Inclusive Approach, so as to be able to work with and support any
other positive approach to working with people, organisations, systems, structures and processes.
Our work showed us that many applied solutions, across the personal, social, work and organisational domains;
were often misconfigured, mis-timed, badly structured or simply ineffective.
Our objective is to use our Pathway to help to improve solutions, better configure them and to design new types
By being Inclusive we can leverage the effectiveness of other solutions and make better use of the resources
that are available.
We also designed our Pathway to provide a common method of measuring and matching problem and solution
architectures; so as to increase the probability of achieving successful outcomes. Contact Us
The Human Algorithm® for Organisations, Systems, Structures
Because we can work with Human Behaviours
in different domains, we can take the underlying Architecture of our approach into the domains of Industry,
Business, Organisations, Health, Welfare, Military and Social.
After all; all of these have been created by Humans' for the use and
benefit of other Humans'.
In the same way that people can conflict; the Organisations, Systems,
Structures and Process that people develop and use, can also conflict.
Conflict within Systems, Structures and Processes also applies to people
working together. Whether its a group of people, teams, departments or units.
Wherever people are and whatever people are doing; The Human Algorithm®
is at play and it is influencing and controlling bad behaviour, good behaviour and great behaviour.
So if you want to influence and change these, then how much better could
your money be spent than by taking account of the influence and control of The Human Algorithm® and how
it is influencing the performance and output of the Organisations, Systems, Structures and Processes that you rely
upon and use. Contact Us
The Human Algorithm® Pathway as a Service
is delivered through Consultancy; Programmes; Training; Implementation; Support; Licensing and Joint
Ventures. We can also provide Public Speaking and Motivational Speaking.
Our focus is on delivering a service focused on medium to long term
benefits. This can produce short term gains as a by-product. Focusing on short term gains rarely produces medium
to long term sustainable benefits.
Applications of The Human Algorithm®
Working at Scale and at the level of the
Individual: Globally there are growing challenges
with problems that cross over the Personal, Social and Work domains. This includes Stress, Depression,
Anger, Anxiety, Drugs & Alcohol. Along with other Personally experienced problems, these impact Social
and Work environments and impact areas such as Quality Control, Productivity, Attendance, Profitability and
Growth. Our Pathway works with all these issues and more.
We don't consider The Human Algorithm® Pathway to be a Therapy. When used with individuals it is a
Strategic Lifestyle Management Process that can provide an Ecosystem within which Therapeutic, Medical and
other approaches can work. The Human Algorithm® Ecosystem provides a Common Platform that other
approaches can fit into and use; to measure, control and adjust what they do.

We Can Help Others To Learn It, Use It and Do
When I look at Solutions for Problems; from my perspective, it seems that I am being invited to focus on the
Promise and not on the reality of what can really be deliver when measured over the medium to long term.
I liken these different Solutions to books. We have many different types of books and many different forms of
books. However; there is a simple requirement for someone to be able to effectively use any book.
The first requirement is that they first need to understand and be familiar with the Alphabet. If you don’t
understand and know how to use the Alphabet; you won’t understand how to link letters together to create words and
be able to access the information and meaning of those words.
What I see with so many Solutions is lots of people and businesses trying to sell pretty looking and fantastic
sounding books, Training, Consultancy and Courses; but who is actually focusing on teaching the Alphabet required
to understand and use them?
Creating new books is easy. Creating great books is more difficult. However; to someone who doesn't understand
the Alphabet and who cannot read; the use of either is limited.
The Human Algorithm® Project is helping people to learn a new Alphabet that they can use to see, understand
and work with their Emotions, Psychology and Behaviors: Allowing them to access this hidden world that they
live in but cannot fully engage with.
We are creating new tools, structures, systems and processes that help people to look into and understand
the Genesis Points of their problems and use these to change and improve.
Our objective is to make The Human Algorithm® Pathway as versatile as Literacy and Numeracy. One way
of doing this is that we made our System so that it can be used by children and adults. It
can also be used with any other positive approach across Personal, Social, Work and Organisational
This means that we can introduce a single method of measuring and recording things, which have, so far, been
difficult or impossible to measure and record. For example: Talking therapies, Alternative Treatments, Etc.
So if you are a provider of Solutions to problems; ask yourself: Am I selling books to people who can’t
The next thing you should ask yourself is this: Should I be working with The Human Algorithm® Project?
