4 Guidelines how to solve any problem. Improve your problem solving skills.
Apply the process of creating a good strategy based on your company’s individual situation:
- The hypothesis
- Make your strategic hypothesis about something that is vital, crucial, and central to your company.
- Solve problems that nobody in your company can solve better than you can and that will make a difference.
- The strategy
- Create your strategy as a conditional if-then statement. The “if” sets the conditions for the expected result. The “then” sets out the results you expect or hope to achieve.
- Treat company problems like a “Science Project.” Be consistent in the process. Plan to evolve and develop your plan until your problem is solved.
- Where to focus, where to defend
- Determining where your company’s “Pivot” and “Hammer” reside can help you create a stronger strategy.
- The metaphor comes from military history, wherein the hammer is the place where you concentrate your efforts during a battle, while the pivot is the place where you play defense and hold the line, so you can focus your resources on the hammer.
- Prioritize your resources and use good time management practices.
- Use complementarity
- Complementarity occurs in a good painting, where all of the elements complement each other and support the image’s focus of attention or main theme.
- Inspire and engage the right people to help you solve your problem.
