“Creative Thinking Inspires Ideas. Idea Inspired Change.” - Barbara Januszkiewicz
SCT-101 Creative Problem Solving & Decision Making
Schedule and Hours
Strategists often regard performance gap as business problems, inefficiency in the current internal business process and/or source for identifying individual’s competency requirements. It is vital for an organization to then identify the root cause(s) of problems and to solve them systematically. The effectiveness and ability to analyse proposed solutions and to make sound decision before the actual execution of any intervention selections is regarded as another key competence one must possess. Brainstorming, aside from some key QC tools, is of great help during this crucial process.
