In this program we teach participants how to define a problem, scope issues related to the problem, generate potential solutions, then analyze and select the best solution. Participants learn how to do this through the application of an efficient and effective analytical method. Participants learn how to:
“Pin” the problem to clearly define the real issue at hand
Put structure to ambiguous problems in an issue-focused way
Generate potential solutions to the problem
Quickly prioritize the highest potential solutions
Analyze the solutions and make a case for the recommendation
The course consists of instructor-introduced concepts and practical application exercises. For a short version of the course, check out the video below and you’ll get a solid understanding of the tools and frameworks used in the program.

Clearer issue definition and more holistic evaluation of possible solutions
Efficient and focused problem solving and analysis which saves time and money
Higher confidence in recommendations being the right recommendations
Better prioritization of efforts so teams work on the highest value opportunities and avoid working on low value ideas
