Logical Thinking for Problem Solving

Program Overview

The first step in mastering the thought process behind problem solving is to deepen understanding of the significance and necessity of logical and critical thinking processes.

This practical training program makes use of PFC’s experience and skills garnered through many years of helping myriad organizations hone their problem solving skills.

Our clients have benefitted greatly from this “action learning” program developed as a response to concerns such as, “I understand the theory and can solve the cases in training, but I have trouble thinking critically about actual problems in the workplace.”

As a follow-up to the in-class program, participants submit their written analysis of a problem (such as “the ideal resolved state and actual current state” of a real problem they want to solve) and receive feedback from the instructor on how to define the problem, examine all elements that relate to this problem, and how to implement practical solutions.

In a follow-up, in-class session one month after the program, participants will present their analysis of their real workplace problem and a proposal to solve it.
