Book "Problem-Solving Master" Insight: InfoInterLogic

Due to fast-paced change, the exponential growth of information, hyper-connectivity, and continuous digital disruptions, the problems facing businesses today turn to be over-complex, have a very wide scope, and are difficult to solve.


The purpose of Problem-Solving Master - Frame Problems Systematically and Solve Problems Creatively“ is to throw some light on how to understand, frame, and solve today’s multilayer, interdependent, and over-complex business problems effortlessly. 

Digital leaders and professionals should self-aware of their role in problems, show professional maturity, and develop a good reputation as the problem-solver.

Illustration, Inference, Interdisciplinarity We live in the world with a mixed bag of physical and virtual, new and old, truth and false, opportunities and risks, etc. Either running a business or taking a life journey is fundamentally an iterative problem-solving continuum. Problem-solving is about seeing a problem and actually finding a solution, not just the band-aid approach to fixing the symptom. Many problems today are complex because you need to take inferential logic to understand the real problems and illustrate them well, take an interdisciplinary approach to solve them in a structural way.

Unbiased It is a continuously changing world with “VUCA” new normal, problems facing individuals or organizations become more complex than ever. So no one can afford to stick to old ways of problem-solving. It’s important to overcome the variety of bias, deepen the level of understanding. If you only intend to fix symptoms, the real issues become bigger and bigger. To make things worse, fixing the wrong cause of a problem is creating more gaps, wasting time and energy, generating “irrational thoughts and illogical solutions.”

Invisible Contemporary business is complex, there are both visible and invisible success factors for solving critical problems and improving business maturity. One of the reasons strategy management often fails because so many business managers only focus on tangible, but they lack an in-depth understanding of invisible or intangible things. To fine-tune “invisible” business elements for framing and solving right problems, business managers and professionals need to be sensitive and discover the hidden clues, understand issues from multiple points of view. Then, identify trade-offs; make choices, while continually remaining open to figure out better solutions.

Interlogic With unprecedented uncertainty and high velocity, business problems become over complex and interdependent. The most obvious symptom of business distress is the widespread problem of incoherence. In practice, there is always a temptation to use simple linear logic to understand highly complex or nonlinear business problem-solving scenarios. People have to make a huge effort to get beyond rational linear thinking, apply interconnected logic to uncover hidden clues and systematically define and estimate, thus plan any problem, project, and phenomenon, regardless of its size to improve problem solving effectiveness. There are different kinds of pontificators about logical reasoning:

“Irrational & Illogical” Due to fast-paced change, the exponential growth of information, hyper-connectivity, and continuous digital disruptions, the problems facing businesses today turn to be over-complex, have a very wide scope, and are difficult to solve. In fact, problem-solving thought processes and practices will not be simple for many of today’s complex problems and it takes an interdisciplinary approach to either frame the right problems and solve them effectively.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 5 million page views with about 7500+ 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.
