All six steps are followed in order – as a cycle, beginning with “1.Identify the Problem.” Each step must be completed before moving on to the next step. At any point the group can return to an earlier step, and proceed from there.
Complex challenges for teams, working groups and boards etc., are usually solved more quickly by using a shared, collaborative, and systematic approach to problem solving.
The Six-Step method provides a focused procedure for the problem solving (PS) group.
It helps keep groups on track, and enables a thorough investigation of the problem and solution search.
It involves implementers and users, and finds a justifiable, monitorable solution based on data.
Overall, the Six Step method is a simple and reliable way to solve a problem.
Using a creative, analytical approach to problem solving is an intuitive and reliable process.
They begin by asking for as many ideas as possible from city residents and urban design experts with no constraints such as budget.
A software developer solves coding problems 40x faster than average.
Creative problem solving is attempting to overcome static, predicable and obvious thinking with techniques designed to encourage and spark creativity.
In many cases, valuable creative ideas occur within the constraints of solving a particular problem.
