Introduction to Problem Solving
Problem solving is critical to every position in every industry.
In this course, you will learn to grasp the situation at the gemba (where the work is done) and use all your senses to understand what is truly happening. All too often, people create countermeasures to perceived problems without digging deeper, asking the right questions, and thinking more. Learning to grasp the actual situation is paramount to identifying root cause(s) of the problem and solving it.
