In the problem-solving realm, there is a commonly cited adage that a problem well defined is a problem half solved. This saying highlights both the importance and challenge of a good problem definition. Unfortunately, we see many problem-solving efforts struggle with this critical step of problem-solving. The result is often disagreements, wasted time, and missed opportunities to solve the problem.
During this webinar, we will:
- Explain why you see so much disagreement over what the “real” problem is,
- Show you how to avoid disagreement by shifting the focus to your organizational goals,
- Demonstrate the use of the problem outline to quickly capture a complete problem definition
- Show you how a well-defined problem will reveal missed opportunities to mitigate risk
