Problem Solving helps participants tackle even challenging problems on the job. They gain practical tools for defining problems and innovating solutions. They also learn problem-solving strategies used by managers, analysts, engineers, facilitators, designers, and scientists. This course helps participants understand how to solve problems by themselves and in workgroups.

You can provide as much or as little oversight as you wish. Track participants' scores on pre- and post-assessments, review their quizzes and activities, or drill down to individual responses. You can also brand this course with your own title, organization name, and logo, which appear on participant materials and the final certification for 1 CEU.
