What's the problem with problem solving? We all use 'problem' as a descriptor for many aspects of a problem. Some call 'causes' the problem, others 'consequences', and sometimes people even call 'solutions' the problem. Confusing, of course. Taking away the effectiveness of problem solving, leading to stacks of new problems.

To give clarity about the anatomy of a problem, how to solve a problem (even the hard ones) and how to prevent problems from happening, here's a helpful document.

Use this PDF to unleash your problem solving skills and abilities.
It helps you in the following ways:
•  to understand what a problem actually is (a deviation to a norm)
•  why there can't be a problem if there is no norm
•  why we often have problems without having norms for it
•  how we can dissect causes until we are at the root (5x Why, fishbone)
•  why the importance of empathy can not be underestimated in problem solving and acting
•  how we can find problems that occur occasionally and are hard to analyse and solve (IS/IS NOT)
•  what difference preventive actions can make
•  why having a plan is a preventive action in itself
•  and many, many more

Apply the knowledge to business, life, relationships... anything. By using this methodology in any area you will learn how to be proficient in problem solving in other area's as well. This will help you spiral up in all aspects of your life, not only in business.
This is what Beleeff wants to accomplish: learn something at work and become a better partner, parent and neighbor while acting on it.

Also check out our accompanying mini-training about the subject, which includes this PDF.
If you want to go all the way and bring this way of problem solving into your own practice, consider the whole package and buy this PDF, the mini-training and an Asana template together.
