The ability to examine and understand the breadth and depth of any given problem
WHAT IS IT?
Problem analysis is the ability to thoroughly understand any given situation or problem including its history, causes, and barriers to resolution.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
So much of life’s work is to problem solve. Whether inside of an organization, neighborhood, school, or greater community, a fundamental role of leaders is to identify and address problems. How can we improve participant morale? What’s the best way to increase employee engagement? Who do we need to buy-in to our idea? How can we decrease expenses? These questions must be thoroughly understood before a plausible solution can be found. In this way, it is vital that a leader has the ability to analyze, understand, and solve problems.
