Digital Problem-Solving Manifesto

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein

Fundamentally, every job is to deal with problems big or small both from the long-term perspective or on the daily basis. You have to think in terms of both 'tangible' and 'intangible' for problem-solving.

from questioning to Problem-framing to Problems Solving      
from analytics to synthesis to Holistic Problem-Solving;
From reactive to proactive to Creative Problem-Solving.

The problem-solving mindset has synthetic nature with multi-level thinking processes involved:
      Discover Root Causes over fixing symptoms;
     Framing the Right Problem before solving it.
       Contextual Understanding over silo thinking.
       Diagnose Big Why before jumping into “HOW.”
         Handle Problems at the mind Level over Band-Aid approach.
      Problem Prevention over problem-fixing.

Problem-solving has a very wide scope and takes the interdisciplinary approach. Problem-solving is about understanding a problem and actually finding a solution to that problem, not just the band-aid approach to fixing the symptom.


Enjoy Problem-Solving through continuous learning.
       Develop Problem-Solving mindset over fix things in routine.
        Solving Illogical Problems with multi-logical solutions.
        Explore Alternative Solutions to solve existing problems.
     Channel Creativity over mechanical methodology.
Tailored Solutions over magic formulas.
      Build Reputation as Problem-Solver over Problem-Creator.

"To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks the real advance in science." - Albert Einstein
