About An Expert Guide to Problem-Solving
Most of us encounter problems in our lives, either at work or at home. These problems cause stress in our minds and leave us exhausted. Instinctively, we start to take ad-hoc actions that we think will resolve the problem, but we soon realize that our actions are not effective and do not prevent or solve the core problem.
Structured problem solving provides a systematic approach to identifying the root causes of a problem. Many scientific tools and methods have been developed to identify effective solutions to any problem. The most widely used problem-solving techniques are listed below:
– Fishbone Diagram
– Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
– SWOT matrix
In this latest version, I have included a new chapter to introduce you to 6 additional problem-solving techniques:
