Problem Solving/Critical Thinking (Online Class)
April 15 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Improve your decision-making capabilities through critical thinking, structured reasoning, and creative problem analysis.
Effective decision makers are those rare individuals who are able to consistently identify and choose the best option among multiple alternatives. Their decisions are imaginative, reasoned, and defensible.
In this course, you will be provided with the training and tools necessary to become an inventive, logical decision maker. You’ll explore a structured way to approach and dismantle problems, and you’ll learn to clarify problems in terms of objectives and issues, with a view toward optimum outcomes.
Applying the techniques of critical thinking allows you to dismantle complex problems and to understand the inputs and implications of your thought processes. This training allows you to develop positions on issues that are logical and explicable to others.
This Problem Solving and Critical Thinking workshop will touch upon:
- PDCA: What is PDCA? How to apply PDCA to problems in the workplace? Activity.
- A3 model: What is an A3? How to apply A3 to problems in the workplace? Activity.
