It also discusses how to identify and manage risk so leaders can make well-informed, effective, and timely decisions to improve performance.
This program will help you:

  • Learn how to design appropriate measurement systems that can drive performance

Problem Solving Through Critical Thinking


Executives and managers frequently grapple with complex challenges that are not recognized as problems until they loom large. Creatively and effectively solving these problems often involves leading a diverse team, which presents its own challenges. Indeed, these teams can end up solving the wrong problem.

A central focus is the difference between formulating problems and solving them. You will learn the specific process for formulating complex, ill-structured problems. You also will learn basic facilitation skills for helping groups engage in problem formulation and problem-solving activities.
This program will help you:

  • Define critical thinking and how it applies to team activities in government agencies

  • Understand the difference between problem formulation and problem solving, and develop the capacity to run processes for both

  • Recognize, identify, and overcome common pitfalls in implementing problem formulation and problem solving activities
