BENEFITS OF DOCUMENT
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.

"I have used Flevy services for a number of years and have never, ever been disappointed. As a matter of fact, David and his team continue, time after time, to impress me with their willingness to assist and in the real sense of the word. I have concluded in fact that it is not at all just a repository of documents/resources but, in the way that David and his team manage the firm, it is like dealing with consultants always ready to assist, advise and direct you to what you really need, and they always get it right.
I am an international hospitality accomplished senior executive who has worked and lived during the past 35 years in 23 countries in 5 continents and I can humbly say that I know what customer service is, trust me.
Aside from the great and professional service that Flevy's team provide, their wide variety of material is of utmost great quality, professionally put together and most current.
Well done Flevy, keep up the great work and I look forward to continue working with you in the future and to recommend you to a variety of colleagues around the world."
– Roberto Pelliccia, Senior Executive in International Hospitality

"[Flevy] produces some great work that has been/continues to be of immense help not only to myself, but as I seek to provide professional services to my clients, it give me a large "tool box" of resources that are critical to provide them with the quality of service and outcomes they are expecting."

"As a small business owner, the resource material available from FlevyPro has proven to be invaluable. The ability to search for material on demand based our project events and client requirements was great for me and proved very beneficial to my clients. Importantly, being able to easily edit and tailor the material for specific purposes helped us to make presentations, knowledge sharing, and toolkit development, which formed part of the overall program collateral. While FlevyPro contains resource material that any consultancy, project or delivery firm must have, it is an essential part of a small firm or independent consultant's toolbox."
