This month we are featuring a free webinar on how to solve problems so that you do not need to solve them again.
So, I took a quick look out on the world wide web, to see what obstacles people are facing to getting problems solved – especially as many of us are in transition from remote working to being back in the office.
Turns out that, at least at a high-level, it does not matter if you are remote or in the office or somewhere in between. The obstacles seem to be the same.
- Lack of communication and sharing of information
- Lack of long-term thinking
- Silos, and along with that, not having everyone moving towards the same goal or in the same direction
- People who seem uninterested in engaging in problem-solving
Depending on the survey or article, these will change in order, but they remain quite consistent.
Consider this – do you have a process to solve problems? Defining a problem-solving process and reflecting on how to make it better each time you finish solving a problem will help you address these four obstacles.
We are interested in hearing from you. Take a minute to answer our survey question. We will share the results in our webinar on August 25th.
