Problem Solving and Decision Making

DesignPatterns

Two important functions of management are:

    Making effective decisions
    Efficiently solving problems

      Many companies often lack the necessary common language or approach to make quick, effective decisions or engage the right people in problem solving.  The KEPNERandFOURIE approach provides management and employees with proven and tested methods to improve their individual and collective problem solving and decision making capabilities. The approach expedites practical application of problem solving and decision making processes by engaging the rational, creative and intuitive dimensions of thinking that exist in organizations.

      Developed collaboratively by Dr. Chuck Kepner and Dr. Mat-thys Fourie in 1997, this method integrates Intuitive, Rational, and Creative thinking in a step-by-step approach called Systems Thinking. This 3-day comprehensive, hands-on, skill building workshop equips participants with a proven and tested method of finding causes to problems and specific information gathering and analysis techniques to enable them to create the best possible solution.
