Duration: 3-6 hours
Although problem solving is one of the main ingredients of a manager’s day at the office, we usually have an unclear image of the steps and processes involved in finding and implementing a good solution. While in real life we usually employ less-organized approaches to problems, this module provides the formal structure that may guarantee a better understanding of the problem and better chances for a sustainable solution. We practice each step, starting with the accurate definition of the immediate problem in operational, addressable terms, and ending with the implementation and evaluation plan.
