Problem Solving and Improvement (Quality and Other Approaches) (T889)
Problem solving is a necessary activity for all organisations. However, it is frequently ineffective: chronic problems that were supposedly solved re-emerge, and opportunities remain unrealised. Although many organisations have had early successes with mechanisms for problem solving and improvement, these have often foundered over time. This module provides a wide range of problem solving approaches, methods and techniques and examines their underpinning concepts, principles and theoretical backgrounds. It will enable you to investigate problems properly; and generate robust, effective solutions that are sustainable. The module also explores the nature of problems and solutions, and the management of problem solving and improvement.
