TRIPLE III TIME: Problem Solving

question-mark-mazeProblem Solving is an every day… every job… every organization challenge.  And like most professional challenges there are a number of styles, methods, and processes that have been researched to offer you the best options for Problem Solving. But sometimes doesn’t it seem like a number of problems get bound-up together? You know what I mean. I believe it is necessary to first apply simplicity in addressing Problem Solving questions…to sort…to study…and to prioritize!

Therefore, this TRIPLE III TIME message will attempt (with the aid of a TOP 10 list of idea-generating questions) …to help with the Problem-Solving challenge!

  1. Does the problem totally belong to me…or do I share it with someone?
  2. What need am I specifically trying to satisfy?
  3. Is my problem unique or have others tried to solve it?
  4. What kind of solutions am I looking for in solving my problem?
  5. What other professionals could I contact for help?
  6. If I researched my problem…where would I look and what might I find?
  7. Is this problem a long-time issue…or brand new?
  8. Are there particular timeframes that push me for a quick problem solution?
  9. Could the problem be broken up into smaller issues?
  10. Would it be easy to problem solve based on convenience…or work extra to discover a stronger solution which however may cost more time and money?

I will admit that all 10 questions are common sense based.  However, common sense sometimes evaporates when the problem seems too big! Baby steps & simplicity could be major Problem Solving formula ingredients.
