Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Whether you realize it or not, you, your staff, and your colleagues most likely suffer from this on a daily basis. In the life sciences – or any regulated industry – repeating errors tends to happen more often because of layers of mandates piled on top of daily responsibilities. From product discovery through commercialization, problem solving is a minute-to-minute task. Fortunately, there are proven, boiler-plate practices that will allow you to remove obstacles and be a more effective employee and/or leader.
This interactive session will show you how to apply a problem solving framework which will make a significant difference in how you identify causes, generate strategies, and select the best solution to your problem. Furthermore, we will provide job aids to help you get started.
At the conclusion of this 90-minute session, participants will be able to:
- Common problem solving pitfalls to avoid at work
- Four ways to identify possible causes and pinpoint the root cause(s) of your issues
- Best practices for generating ideas and selecting the best solution
