HDI Structured Problem Solving for the Support Professional

Learn to troubleshoot effectively through presentation and interactive workshop exercises.

GK# 2441

Course Overview

Often, analysts use an ad hoc approach to problem solving, guided by their instincts and past experience. But such an approach is inconsistent and often wastes time and resources. Structured problem solving (SPS) provides a systematic approach. It includes defining, describing, establishing possible causes, testing the most probable cause, and verifying the true cause. When integrated into the incident management process, analysts and technicians can use proper questioning skills, critical and creative thinking skills, knowledge capturing skills, and diagnostic skills to solve incidents and problems efficiently and accurately.

This dynamic course focuses on the value of a structured, consistent problem solving process. You will learn to harness your natural problem solving skills and successfully apply them during applicable and energizing activities. You will participate in a continuous workshop scenario intended to engage and embed each learning concept.
