Participants will gain practical techniques for:
  • Determining what problems to focus on and deciding who should be involved in solving the problem.
  • Clarifying what the problem is and gathering information about the problem. 
  • Determining and analyzing the causes. Finding the root cause.
  • Getting buy-in and support along the way.
  • Clarifying what the solution must do, then generating and weighting alternative solutions.
  • Selecting appropriate courses of action and creating an action plan.
  • Anticipating implementation problems.
  • Determining performance measures and verifying solutions.
  • Keeping a team focused on the problem-solving process.
