The field of problem solving is rich with many specific methodologies. The number is so large that it is impossible to know them all. The need for a unique general approach exists but creating such an approach is challenging: Is it possible? “A Systematic Approach to Problem Solving” is just such a general approach. This comprehensive pocket guide describes the different steps of the approach, along with the tools and methods to be used at each step to successfully address the many types of problems you will encounter.
The approach detailed in this book was first developed by the author as a business strategy development tool. The initial aim was to provide a step-by-step method to clarify complex industrial situations and to break them into projects of value for the management. During many years of successful application and improvement the approach developed into a useful methodology for also solving personal, social, and political problems in life.
It has been improved through many years of teaching at the University of Grenoble UIAD and has proven that it can be successfully applied to most if not all the problems that you will encounter in life.
