25 Copyright Reserved ©: Dr Ahmad Bassit What is Problem-Solving? Primarily a way of thinking, analyzing a situation, or using certain reasoning skills not learnt through the memorization of specific facts; but by immersing one self in the problem-solving process and applying both past experience & knowledge to solve the problem at hand.

26 Copyright Reserved ©: Dr Ahmad Bassit Problem-Solving Is A tool, means of thinking and philosophy. IT is the predisposition to learn from every available opportunity to get the optimum that can be gleaned from the experience.

27 Copyright Reserved ©: Dr Ahmad Bassit Other Root Cause Analysis Techniques Force Field Analysis – Visually show forces that impact your problem or issue Scatter Diagrams – Graphs the relationship of two variables – quantifies the correlation, showing how one variable influences another Process Mapping – Maps the “as is” flow of activities that make up a process – look for excessive handoffs, redundancies, and other root causes of inefficiencies Benchmarking – Compares existing performance to another internal or external source, identifies issues not otherwise revealed through other techniques 27 of 58
