Problem Solving Techniques

The tools in this section help you solve complicated, difficult problems.

By using these techniques you can start to tackle problems which might otherwise seem huge, overwhelming and excessively complex. These tools give you a starting point in problem solving where other people would just feel helpless and intimidated by the situation.

The section starts with some simple complexity skills and then moves on to more powerful, 'industrial strength" techniques like use of Systems Diagrams, SWOT Analysis, Cash Flow Forecasting and Risk Analysis.

This is a complex and well-developed area - we can only go 'so far' in these articles, introducing you to relatively simple techniques. The books on the right hand side bar will help you to take your skills much further. Alternatively, complexity and decision making skills are core components of most good MBA courses - some of the resources on the left will introduce you to these.
