About the course

How often do you walk into a meeting called to tackle a problem and within the first few minutes, participants already are debating about a solution? Jumping to a solution is one of the most prevalent and pernicious maladies in organizations, which leads to delayed problem solving, high costs, and sluggish responsiveness that can demoralize an entire organization. This workshop provides new insights into how individuals and teams can solve the right problem the first time. The critical challenge is that all too often when tackling problems, individuals and teams suffer from a set of biases and impediments that cause them to focus on problem solving. In contrast, this program focuses on the art of comprehensively formulating problems before solving them. Participants will learn a variety of specific and proven processes to help them and their teams solve the right problem the first time.
