Breakthrough Problem Solving

CLPs: 24

SF-182 Required

Course Description

The status quo in an organization functions as the baseline upon which all employees operate. However, this does not mean alternate perspectives and solutions should not be considered. As an organization grows, so too must the status quo. The concepts presented in Breakthrough Problem Solving are a logical follow-on to the skills learned in Critical Thinking for Problem Solving. Breakthrough Problem Solving provides an opportunity to harness those skills and put them into practice to reframe and overcome organizational issues. Challenge yourself to overcome common barriers and transform your thinking by engaging in breakthrough problem-solving.
