Critical Thinking and Problem Solving for Project Leaders
Develop logical, data-driven solutions to your business and organizational problems
Business changes in the “blink of an eye.” Executives are constantly bombarded with a plethora of problems. The obstacles to success are plentiful and great ideas are simply not enough.
In a world of rapid, constant change, managers need a reliable process to quickly evaluate issues and identify the best solutions. Based on the idea that logically-sound, evidence-based decisions that are rapidly executable are better than ideal solutions that come too late or never, this course covers a proven process for solving complex problems. Exploring a combination of cultivating a problem-solving mindset and establishing a problem-solving process, participants will acquire a powerful tool kit for effectively and efficiently developing achievable project outcomes. The net result: better solutions developed faster to positively affect your growth, profitability, and ability to service your customers.
