This online Problem Solving: The 5 Steps training course will define and explain the five steps involved in the problem-solving process. The five steps that will help solve any workplace dispute include defining the situation, providing a quick fix if necessary, identifying the root causes, taking corrective action, and evaluating and following up.
Solving problems requires a systematic method for defining the undesirable situation, then identifying and eliminating the root causes to prevent the problem from recurring.
Once you have compiled a problem list, you need to reach a clear understanding of each problem. Often the temptation is to act first and think later—a "ready-fire-aim" approach at the first problem on the horizon. Trying to solve problems without fully understanding them frequently makes the situation worse.
The purpose of this course is to learn how to define an undesirable situation so that you can better explain it to others and begin gathering information for problem solving. Ultimately, your aim is to eradicate the problem.
