For those identified problems/issues with many causes and effects, there are potentially many solutions, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The solutions may impact just one of the effects or may impact several effects. The goal this week is to generate as many solutions as possible based on the critical analysis of the problem created earlier. At this stage, don’t worry about whether the solution is effective. Simply generate as many potential solutions as you can. Once you have generated a list, select two potential resolutions and identify the advantages and disadvantages of each solution.
- Review the “Problem Solving Template,” attached.
- Review the causes and effects that you generated in Week 6.
- Review the critical analysis narrative that you prepared in Week 7.
- Think about some potential resolutions to your identified problem and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
