Energy & Oil Industry Problem Solving

Solving problems in the volatile marketplace of the energy and oil industry requires constant attention and strict adherence to proven problem solving techniques.  Frequent and unpredictable changes suffered by the energy industry make this decision making framework all the more important if not critical.  Kepner-Tregoe problem solving consultants recognize that business does not stop when things change as your customers still rely on you.  Unanticipated fluctuations in regulation can create tensions within other parts of the operation and increase the risk or number of incidents.  For this reason the Kepner-Tregoe problem solving framework is structured to reduce the number of incidents, severity of these incidents, and quickly get to the cause of the problem through a root cause analysis.

The complex business web in which oil or energy companies operate poses many challenges across all functions and departments, from IT to production.  The Kepner-Tregoe problem solving and decision making (PSDM) method creates coherence from incongruity to train and develop managers and leaders to ask the right questions to solve difficult business problems.  Making smart business decisions with talent shortages, financial constraints and the constant need to invest in new markets or technologies requires this clear thinking.  

Kepner-Tregoe helps oil companies and energy companies make strategic decisions by offering problem solving decision making training, consulting services, leader development workshops, and customized solutions.  These provide a problem solving and decision making (PSDM) framework that helps energy or oil companies achieve excellence.
