Stages of problem solving presentation Presentation Transcript

  • 1. The Stages of Problem-Solving
  • 2.  In previous class discussion, a problem was defined as a situation the causes uncertainty and difficulty in achieving what you want to achieve. This presentation will outline the Stages of Problem-solving.
  • 3.  The process of problem solving can be divided into several stages. This is done to make it easier to understand the steps in the process of problem solving. To become a successful problem-solver, you need to understand the stages involved and follow them in sequential order whenever you have a problem.
  • 4. The graphic shows the stages of problemsolving; demonstrating how each stage isconnected. By methodically moving througheach stage, you get closer to the goal of solvingthe problem.
  • 5.  Clearly state the problem Identify what circumstances lead to the cause of the problem. Write a clear definition of the problem and the barriers encountered.
  • 6.  Analyze the problem so you fully understand it and then develop ideas which will achieve your goal Develop several ideas to solve the problem to increase your chances of finding the best solution to the problem.
  • 7.  This stage is a process of decision-making based on your comparing the possible outcomes of your alternative solutions; this is the “DO” stage This stage involves: ◦ Identifying all parts of the solution ◦ Eliminating solutions that do not meet certain criteria ◦ Evaluating the solutions against the desired outcomes ◦ Assessing the risks associated with the “best” solution ◦ Making a decision to implement the solution
  • 8.  The process of implementing the solution occurs in 3 stages: ◦ Planning and preparing to implement the solution ◦ Taking the appropriate action and monitoring the effects  The process has to be monitored to make sure the solution is going smoothly  Any problems must be addressed quickly ◦ Review the success of the action.
  • 9.  Successful problem-solving involves looking at the outcome of the solution and making the necessary changes in the earlier stages if necessary in order to reach the identified goal.
