PROBLEM SOLVING 2 Project Details The objective of this assignment is to take one of the given scenarios and use the six-step problem-solving approach.

It is crucial to identify the main issue, as there may be several underlying circumstances that seem like, or are part of the dilemma. Sorting through information and writing it down will assist in the organization process. Furthermore, it will make the problem-solving steps process more efficient and productive.

At this point, the object is to identify any potential obstacles or circumstances which may slow or block reaching your goal. More often these causes are human beings, life, and the environment. After your analysis, review the problem definition to be sure it is still accurate. Every problem needs a solution; some problems have several, and that is step three. Start to generate a list of resolutions to the problem. Be sure to include questions that will cover a varied perspective such as who, what, where, why and how. Generating ideas and writing them down, will aid as you consider the advantages and disadvantages of each possible solution on the list.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
