Analytical Thinking and Problem Solving

Get powerful problem-solving skills to more successfully reason through business problems

In today’s lean, flat organizations, it is everyone’s job to effectively solve problems. And while analytical thinking skills may seem natural, they’re not necessarily intuitive, and they don’t come easily to many people. Analytical thinking and problem solving are foundational thinking skills that involve breaking things down into their component parts. They also involve deductive reasoning, drawing conclusions from givens and applying judgments to reach conclusions from a combination of evidence and assumptions. This seminar introduces you to fundamental thinking processes so that you can successfully analyze and solve a wide variety of business problems. Get these essential analytical thinking and problem-solving skills now to give yourself a powerful competitive and career advantage!

How You Will Benefit

  • Learn a process for breaking down complex problems into their components and gain clarity around possible solutions
  • Apply strategies and techniques to avoid emotional triggers that can impede your best thinking
  • Explore how to generate solutions to atypical problems and then test the solutions
  • Know how to accurately interpret probability and other methods for increasing certainty in your judgment
  • Learn strategies for negotiating among variables and conditions
  • Recognize the difference between rationality of purpose and rationality of process
