Our programs include additional coaching from our certified and experienced workshop instructors. With its flexible format, the workshop can offer the full KT Problem Solving and Decision Making training or just the processes you want to focus on now. Sessions offered include:
Problem Analysis: This analytic approach to gathering and evaluating relevant information helps participants efficiently find the cause when things are not working as they should. Our step-by-step process cuts through data to quickly resolve issues. Participants learn to identify problems and define problem scope, create and test possible causes and confirm the true cause before taking action.
Decision Analysis: This systematic, data-driven approach to decision making guides the reasoning needed to make the best-balanced choice. Our analytic process supports more effective strategic, operational, and tactical decision making. Participants learn to identify objectives, choices and risks for potential decisions and use simple-but-robust techniques to make the best choices.
Situation Appraisal: This critical thinking technique helps to impose order when faced with disorder, uncertainty, or confusion. Workshop participants learn to establish priorities and decide when and how to take actions that make good sense and produce good results. When faced with difficult situations/projects or just managing day-to-day planning, Situation Appraisal helps to clearly define and prioritize issues. This leads to planning the appropriate actions that will yield the best results in a timely manner.
Potential Problem Analysis: This analytic approach to risk management protects the success of actions or projects. Participants learn to prevent serious problems and limit the impact of problems that happen. In addition, participants learn Potential Opportunity Analysis, a similar process for identifying and leveraging future opportunities.
We also offer focused, LiveOnline training for specific industry applications. For example, manufacturing operations may also choose our Root Cause Analysis Workshop. Our LiveOnline IT service management workshops include Troubleshooting Foundations, Major Incident Management and Problem Management.
