Problem Solving Process: Problem Identification And Decision Making Process

Two key elements that exist in the decision making process are problem identification and problem solution. In order to achieve a successful outcome the problem should be properly identified. A determination that a variance between the desired result and the actual result, a gap, needs to exist for there to be a problem. Once the determination has displayed a gap exist, the objective is close the gap and move forward with the best possible solution for a positive outcome. The problem identification stage is the outlining and identification of all elements to the root cause of the issue. Throughout the identification stage, it is critical for a team to virtually slowdown the process and not rush to a conclusion. As a result of slowing the process…show more content…
Continuous monitoring when it comes to processes, by evaluating and monitoring along the way, the early identification of issues gives way for a real time evaluation and solution. As a result, you are waiting until the issue has passed and creating a near miss. Using the simple structure of identification, inventory, intervention, and institutionalization establishing a baseline that will be followed every time. Clear definition of the problem at hand, no matter the complexity, by uncovering the root cause reduces rework down the road. The use of the inquiry perspective will develop my team and resources, creating the best picture of what we are faced with and how to resolve it. Developing and evaluating all possible alternatives is key. Not having a solid evaluation process in place guarantees that we will inevitably fail. Finally, the completion of implementation when it comes to a solution. By failing to fully implement, it is guaranteed the problem will resurface and the process and create rework. By fully implementing the team can make it a programed decision for the
