Problem Solving Strategies and Approaches

Problem solving starts with a burning desire to change something and an open mind.

4 Levels of Problem Solving

There are many different strategies for solving problems. They include Five WHYs, Reframing, Guess and Test, Work Backward, Use a Variable, Creative Problem Solving, Look for a Pattern, Brainstorming, STRIDES,  and many others. You need to pick the strategy that fits the problem best.

First and foremost, you must focus on desired results and keep your mind open.

Donít limit your effort to just fixing the problem. See how you could make things better than they were before, may be even radically better. Visualize the desired result: You should have a clear picture of the desired result in your mind. Imagine what you would like to get.

Try new approaches. Seek disruptions. If you always do what youíve always done, you will never do anything new and become non-competitive pretty fast. Intentionally challenge assumptions and disrupt the way you do things so you will try new and different approaches.

Turn Problems Into Opportunities: 6 Tips

The Power of Active Thinking

Active thinking is about passionately caring about and being involved with a cause, and changing the problem in order to explore it.

Socratic Method

To solve a problem, brake it down into a series of questions, the answers to which gradually distill the answer you seek.

The Power of Prototyping

Prototyping can help you tackle problems when you don't have the answers. "When the project is especially complex, prototyping is a way of making progress when the challenges seem insurmountable. Focused prototyping helps resolve little critical problems one by one. Once you get in gear, you'll be surprised at how easily some of the solutions appear," writes Tom Kelly from IDEO.
