root cause problem solving
Problem solving is critical to every person, in every role, in every organization. This course is designed so participants will learn how to grasp the situation at hand and use their critical thinking tools to understand what is truly happening.
PROBLEM SOLVING & A3 THINKING
Learning to grasp the actual situation is paramount to identifying root causes of the problem and solving it. Throughout this course, we use a case example to illustrate the problem-solving approach as you are learning. You will deepen your understanding by applying this new way of thinking to a problem of your choice.
PROBLEM SOLVING TECHNIQUES AND THE A3 FRAMEWORK
The A3 framework is a problem solving tool created from lean principles. It creates a systematic approach to solving big problems while also teaching the critical thinking skills needed to push past surface level thinking and really identify root causes in your business.
Clearly define problems, beginning with understanding the current situation
Learn to break down vague problems to specific problems that can be solved to root cause
Build a foundational understanding of problem types and problem solving
IMPROVED CRITICAL THINKING
At it's core solving problems is about thinking deliberately, methodically and patiently. We teach critical thinking skills in addition to the A3 framework to accelerate your teams ability to solve small problems in real time and large problems in a systematic way.
Surface level problem solving always involves having to fix the problem multiple time. Learn the skills needed to fix the right problem, at the right time and fix it permanently.
Being able to successfully identify actual problems and describe them appropriately is half of the battle. Using A3 Thinking in combination with critical thinking tools means your people will be master problem solvers and be able to implement improvements faster and more effectively than before.
