Problem Identification

Problem identification skills training

People and organisations waste countless resources fixing symptoms of the problems. They have most likely not received professional development training in problem identification skills. For example, the number one cause of conflict in the workplace is role ambiguity. How many internal problems could be solved in organisations if they eliminated role ambiguity? Instead, most organisations will tackle the symptoms of role ambiguity rather than the root cause of the problem. Solving problems training and problem identification training are vital skills to minimise productivity losses.
