Critical Thinking and Problem Solving


Imagine if you could solve a problem once and it would go away. Or, if you could implement a solution that really works, or seize upon opportunities before it is too late.

This course presents a structured approach for tackling problems, opportunities and decisions that will ultimately help you get better results—whether you 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, you’ll practice using these different thinking approaches to achieve maximum results. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply these concepts to a specific problem or opportunity from your own business environment, share newly learned approaches with classmates, and give and receive feedback on those approaches.
