     Innovative and Intelligent Problem-Solving

Innovative and intelligent Problem-Solving In the real world, due to hyper complexity and unprecedented uncertainty, problem-solving in the majority of organizations today is woefully inadequate, most people usually never question what is exactly the problem because "it's the way things should be." Often, events and patterns are observed on the surface, and then the action is taken to fix the symptom, but that is too early, and perhaps cause further problems later on.

How to Create Multiple Pathways for Problem-Solving Fundamentally, the business or societal progress is made via a healthy cycle of problem-framing and problem-solving continuum. There is no magic formula for problem-solving, With the increasing pace of changes and shortened knowledge cycle, the best practices are outdated sooner than ever and “commonly known” methodology could be no longer working anymore when the circumstances change dramatically. You can't always wait for the "best" solution to emerge. It is important to experiment, explore, engage, and create multiple pathways to solve problems creatively.

From Problem-Solving Conundrum to Solution-Driven Digital Continuum We are experiencing the major paradigm shift from the industrial machine age to the post-industrial information/ knowledge /insight/ digital ages at the societal level. These changes and transformations are reshaping our thinking and recasting the way we view ourselves, the systems of which we are the part, and the way how we live, think and work. Running a business is fundamentally a problem-solving continuum. With lightweight digital technologies and well-educated digital workforce, can organizations today move from problem-solving conundrum to a solution-driven digital continuum?

Problem Solving With Intentional NoveltyFundamentally either running a business or living life is an iterative problem-solving continuum. There are strategic problem solving from a long term perspective and tactical problem solving on a daily basis. Problem Solving with intentional novelty is about how to think unconventionally or from a new perspective, frame and solve problems creatively. In the business world, you can't always wait for the "best" solution to emerge. It is important to experiment, explore, and encourage a new way to understand tough issues and deal with them in an innovative manner.

How to Leverage Systems Thinking in Problem Diagnosing and Solving in Digital Era?The world we live in is full of opportunities and problems. Many problems do exist because they are either ill-defined or the concept cannot be adequately captured by our current language contextually, or often, they get lost in translation. In addition, there's the problem that the same word means different things to different people because they carry different emotional baggage or have cognitive differences. So what’re the best scenarios for problems diagnosing and problems solving? And how to leverage Systems Thinking in managing them?

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 3 million page views with about 7200+ blogs posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
