Solving problems in the new world.
In the past, solving a problem meant finding the next piece of information, but now, thanks to technology, we have all of the information at our finger tips. Today, solving a problem means finding the signal in the noise, carving away information that is distracting and thinking collaboratively to focus on the right problems. We built Lyra to build the capacities and perspectives for modern-day problem solving—helping people to think together in teams and networks.
Fullbridge built Lyra because modern technologies don’t help people easily ideate together with focus. Email is disjointed and ideas get lost. Messaging and chat apps pile on information making it harder to find the signal in the noise. Lyra helps teams and networks to focus virtual dialogue on problems, engage in diagnosis, and drive towards focused solutions.
We learn best through relevance.
Learning can be inspiring when people see and understand its relevance and application. Lyra brings learning into the flow of your life with content that is relevant and useful. We learn best when we focus on one concept at a time. Learning activities benefit when we apply the lessons to solving the problems that matter to us. Lyra combines richly designed learning feeds with prompts that drive a social network of participants to solve problems together. Problem solving with Lyra is supported by Learning Feeds that bring the best methods of critical and creative thinking into your team or network's active process. And Lyra is constantly providing data that empowers you and your peers with timely insights.

Lyra Method Series (LMS)
Lyra Method Series (LMS) features some of the world’s leading thought leaders on teamwork and problem solving. Learning Feeds inspire, inform, and prompt participants to think in new ways in solving a problem that matters to them. By learning together, organizations and networks tap into the power of the social group and the rigor of both creating and assessing ideas— harnessing the power of peer review and generating important judgment skills and behaviors. Lyra is the future of learning, bringing method around problem solving to the flow of our work and life.
STIMULATE. DIAGNOSE. LEARN.
Lyra Question Series (LQS)
The Lyra Question Series (LQS) was designed by Fullbridge as a better way of tapping into the range of ways people think about problems. The LQS provides a structured way to stimulate, diagnose, and learn about critical and creative thinking in social networks. The LQS is based upon a question rubric that stimulates participants to generate and assess ideas together. The questions make different demands on participant thinking, and the process explores how people create ideas over time in response to different forms of problems.
