Problem Finding: A Project Management Perspective

Group Training + View more dates & times


Leaders with problem solving skills are crucial for maintaining an effective organization. The capacity for fixing problems with teamwork and efficiency is a highly valued and useful ability. While organizations tend to hire those with effective problem-solving skills, problem finding abilities are often overlooked and underrepresented. Often, uncovering a problem is the hardest and most important step in rectifying an issue. The process of problem finding entails taking a fresh look at a situation and, through creativity and imaginative thinking, discovering problems that others had no idea existed. Problem finding is an extremely valuable skill set in today’s world, and yet most individuals have not received training for viewing their organizations through this unique lens. Participants receive this training in this course, cultivating the ability to identify problems as well as trace them back to initial causes. This course explores problem finding as well as problem solving, with an emphasis on developing in participants the often-lacking skill of problem finding.
