Setting Type Problem Solving

Training Objective

Cases studies are used to learn the two types of problem solving: event-type problem solving, which plans countermeasures for problems that arise, and objective-setting problem solving, which plans measures for achieving future objectives.

Course Characteristics

During Day-1 the thinking and procedures required for event-type problem solving and their importance are explained. After that, the fundamental logical thinking required for considering a problem is learned and then case studies are used to learn how to apply the various event-type problem-solving procedures.
