In honor of ThinkPad’s 30th anniversary, Lenovo conducts an in-depth global research study to understand thinking habits, identify thinking gaps and uncover new ways of thinking through technology that can better the future of humanity

 October 5, 2022 – To take a critical look at how today’s societal challenges have affected global productivity and attitudes, Lenovo today releases its first-ever Think Report. This report identifies a compromised way of thinking in today’s world, with global respondents claiming a loss of roughly two hours per day in productivity due to their inability to think purposefully, primarily because of burnout, stress and mental fatigue they have experienced from the tremendous societal changes in the past two years.

This timely report – which surveyed 5,700+ people across the US, UK, Germany and Japan – comes on the heels of the 30th anniversary of the Lenovo ThinkPad. The insights look to educate people in the workforce on the importance of “real thinking,” and will enable those to use technology more intelligently, collaboratively — and less intrusively, in a way that isn’t distracting to living life and thriving.

“It is eye-opening to see that people globally feel that societal progress is in jeopardy because of a lack of real thinking. 80% of those surveyed believe that we, as a society, need to develop a new revolution in thinking,” commented Emily Ketchen, VP and CMO of Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo. “As we celebrate ThinkPad’s 30th anniversary, it’s a pivotal time to re-evaluate how human-centered technology can catalyze better thinking in all aspects of our lives – from home to work to school and more.”

The Thinking Gap

Respondents largely feel that the external events of the last few years (e.g., COVID-19, economic disruptions, etc.) are contributing to and exacerbating distractions, heightened multitasking and fatigue, which further impairs the quality of their thinking.

  • Across all respondents, just 34% say they spend “all” or “most” of their thinking time in clear, deep, and productive thinking.
  • 75% of IT Decision Makers globally say that their colleagues struggle “a great deal” or “somewhat” with engaging in clear and productive thinking.
  • 64% of those surveyed feel that they are reliant on practical or “survival” thinking and the ability to think quickly and multitask is “extremely” or “very important” – thus, resulting in a lack of innovative and actionable thinking that can impact advancement.

In tandem, most respondents feel the situation is not improving – projecting that their lives will not get any easier or any less stressful over the next several years.

The Power of Thinking

Across the globe, while broad segments of respondents said they are struggling to achieve better thinking today, respondents have positive associations with improved thinking and understand the benefits that come with unlocking higher-order thinking.
