Problem Solving

Recipe book

Finding the Solution:
A Recipe Approach to Problem Solving for Groups & Individuals

This book is filled with tools that are recipes for solving most any problem.

Treat this book like most any recipe book when creating a meal.  In using a recipe book you pick and choose whichever recipes would suit your needs.  Much in the same way, pick and choose the “recipes” in this book that are appropriate for the problem.

These recipes are for "rational" problems (a problem as a result of a change) as well as for creative problems (a new situation or opportunity).

It is best to ensure that your “meal” is complete.  When picking “recipes” make sure you pick at least one from each problem solving step to make it complete:

  • Targeting
  • Idea Generating
  • Decision Making
  • Implementing

All of these “recipes” can be used in a group and an individual can use most.

There are four sections to this recipe book:

Introduction: This section maps out the problem solving process
