Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

This three-day, elective course presents a structured approach for tackling problems, opportunities and decisions that will ultimately help participants get better results—whether they are innovating, managing crises, or planning for the future. The course addresses the five types of critical thinking needed in business environments: strategic thinking, tactical thinking, analytical thinking, innovative thinking, and implicative thinking. It also teaches a proven five-step process for responding to business problems and opportunities. Through exercises, participants will practice using these different thinking approaches to achieve maximum results. Participants will also have the opportunity to apply these concepts to a specific problem or opportunity from their own business environment, share newly learned approaches with classmates, and give and receive feedback on those approaches
