Problem-solving is about seeing a problem and actually finding a solution to that problem, not just the band-aid approach to fix the symptom.

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

   Inner Cause Effect

The world we live in becomes more complex, with information exponentiality and unprecedented uncertainty so the emerging problems are also becoming over-complex and interdependent. Trying to fix the wrong cause of a problem will waste talent, resources or time, increase anxiety and reward mediocrity. Thus, it’s important to make extensive observations, do deep analysis, gain comprehensive understanding of causation, correlation, and figure out the exact cause and effect of problems in order to solve them smoothly without causing more issues later on.

In many circumstances, people fix the issues, but the symptoms continue to get back, so they stop the effort. But their ignorance perhaps causes more serious issues later. The problems usually have many causes and can be very complex, you can't figure out the exact cause and effect so the solutions are vague. What are the best techniques to diagnose the causes and solve problems effectively?

Ignorance In Problem-Solving Fundamentally every work is the problem-solving continuum. Any problem is the right problem if there is an attempt to find a solution for making progressive changes. It becomes about addressing the correct need and perhaps the problem becomes how to identify the need at the right level. Good problem-solvers take a proven approach to fix the issue efficiently; great problem-solvers dig through the root and take care of a series of issues effectively; wise problem-solving masters can prevent or dissolve the problem effortlessly.

The wrong direction will no doubt lead to the wrong destination. When trying to determine the macro environment and how the various factors influence business strategic planning and execution one way or another, it is difficult to move away entirely from assumptions. But it’s important to clear logic, update knowledge, do deep analysis, integrate the parts into the whole, in order to steer the business in the right direction and make leapfrog changes.

InnerCauses of Getting Stuck at the State of Problem-Solving Impasse Generally speaking, a problem is a difference between an expectation (vision or intention) and the actual situation (current reality) coupled with a negative feeling. Problem-solving is about seeing a problem and actually finding a solution to that problem, not just the band-aid approach to fix the symptom. In today’s hyper-connected and ever-changing business environment, business problems become over-complex and interdependent. Even though you have a good intention to solve problems, perhaps you lack of the right talent and capabilities to define and resolve the real problems. Here are three causes of getting stuck at the state of problem-solving impasse.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 5 million page views with about 8300+ 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.
