Problems, in the workplace and in people’s personal lives, are often handled with indifference or passivity. It is assumed that people lack preventative skills and end up dealing with the consequences and not the root of the problem. They tend to solve problems by using provisional hypotheses and experience rather than acquiring the skills or using proven methods to handle them adequately. Other factors may include that they cannot define the problem, define the causes thereof or cannot find the best solutions. These factors often lead to failure in handling problems effectively.
This Course has been designed to show that there are specific tools and methodologies for solving problems, as well as, to show that problem-solving skills do not necessarily depend on the previous experience of a similar problem. Skills taught in this program will help leaders solve problems for long-lasting solutions, not just immediate fixes.
