One-day problem solving and decision making workshop

Speaker - Jon Robinson

10 July 10 - 4pm 15Hatfields, Chadwick Court, London, SE1 8DJ


• Do you struggle with finding effective ways to solve problems at work? 

• Do you find it hard to make the right decisions? 

• Do you sometimes fail to be able to justify the decisions you've made? 

• Do you get stumped by seemingly insoluble problems? 

• Do you find it hard to choose between the options you are faced with?

If the answer to any (or all) of these problems is yes, then this practical 
one-day workshop is just for you! 
The workshop will help you become an effective problem solver and decision maker. To do this, we will provide you with a comprehensive set of tools to use, and practical training on how to use them. By the end of the workshop, you will have a wide range of new techniques to use, and the skills and confidence to use them effectively back at work. 
You will do this by learning (among other things) how to: 

  • Adopt proven problem solving and decision making methodologies 

  • Identify the core problem in a complex situation and understand that the core problem may not be what you think it is 

  • Use analytical techniques including PMI, Repertory Grid, Decision Tree, Force Field and Paired Comparison 

  • Recognise how your own thinking affects your ability to solve problems 

  • Understand that different ways of thinking can improve (or impair) your ability to solve problems and make decisions 

  • Gain an insight into Lateral Thinking and Six Thinking Hats techniques 

  • Identify the links between decision making and problem solving 

  • Recognise the importance of risk assessment in problem solving 

  • Understand the impact of time pressures on effective problem solving. 

The Speaker

Jon will not only give you practical and easy-to-use tools, but also expert advice based on his many years successful experience. He will also provide you with a way of accessing his advice and guidance on problem-solving and decision-making after the workshop day.
