Business Problem Solving

Is there really anything as a problem? Does chaos or challenge mean you have a problem? I am under the belief that such things as other call problems are indeed the life-blood of opportunity and the louder it knocks the greater the gain. Embrace chaos. In my many years in business I loved a good challenge; let me recommend a good audio book incase you find yourself embattled with what you believe to be insurmountable problems:

Audio Book Review- "The Solutions Focus" by Paul Z Jackson and Mark McKergrow.

This audio book was interesting in that it attempted to argue the point of making of importance of system based methodology for problem solving, rather than free flowing all options possible problem solving. Throughout the tape they were committed to convincing the listener that system flow chart type problem solving created more positive changes. Throughout they talked about fixing problems that arise in markets, management, cash flow, labor issues by finding out what is working where and implementing more of those positive processes throughout rather than delving into the negative bio-feed back that organizations can create. While I agree. You should never shove crap under the carpet, because it smells. Shovel the crap and force it out the window. The rest of the tape was fine. But as far as I am concerned BS walks it always has and pretending to that every thing is wonderful will end you up like Enron, World Com, ImClone or Krispy Kreme. So at the end of the day, their advice is sound but only to a point, because everyone's crap stinks and I get tired of excuses, don't you. Ask FDR.

If you have trouble coping with problem solving and cannot yet master the flow of on the fly solutions, then stop, slow it down and use the "Solutions Focus" to help you. Think about it.
