Human progress is fundamentally achieved via an iterative problem-solving scenario.

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.



Initiatives The world we co-shared becomes more hyper-connected and interdependent, the emergence of potential opportunities and risks for exploring digital is likely to follow a nonlinear pattern with exponential speed. Thanks to the exponential growth of information and advanced technology, the global society is making certain progress technologically or methodologically. However, there are still numerous problems that need to be solved thoroughly; quite lots of common challenges that have to be overcome collaboratively.

Initiativesviaassertiveness Due to the complexity and ever-changing business dynamic with frequent disruptions, behind many critical business initiatives, there are numerous points-of-view for varying stakeholders, as well as different assumptions of sequence & consequence.

Initiatlogicalreasoning Change is inevitable in circumstances full of complexity, uncertainty, and unpredictability, to deal with varying complex issues in today’s “VUCA” world, it is important to take cross-logical approach to analyze, discover patterns, make objective perceptions, leverage multidimensional thought processes and nonlinear logic to diagnose the root causes, understand interconnectivity, make sound judgment, and handle problems step-wisely.

Initiatives Organizations today are inundated with the sea of information, overwhelmed with too many business initiatives, overloaded with operation and short term business concerns. There are strategic and tactical initiatives, management initiatives or GRC initiatives, identifying what generates the most value for the company and expressing that in clearly-defined business goals helps business leaders keep their eyes on what matters, strike the right balance of long term perspective and quick benefits.

Uncovercauseeffect Every meaningful thing has a logic underneath. Some problems usually have many causes; thus, the cause-effect of the problem is not always linear, a small effect in one place can cause a cascade of events that produce a nonlinear huge impact somewhere else. A structural problem-solver contemplates in a systematic way: What is the problem, what is the symptom, what could be the root causes? Which perspective should I consider? Did I overlook anything? What are the cause-effects, how to solve the real problem without causing further issues later on?

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 7 million page views with about 9900+ 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.
