Problem solving steps

Follow these problem solving steps described in this mind map template to identify the cause of a problem and find the solution.

Firstly, understand the problem and describe it as detailed as possible. Include an ideal situation that will allow you to picture the optimum scenario you are reaching for and set your goals: what do you want to achieve by solving this problem? What will be the overall impact?

Secondly, after defining these steps, consider all potential outcomes and brainstorm the solutions. Sometimes it is useful to focus on previous experiences and know what other people you admire would do. This is a great alternative to detach yourself and see the problem from the outside, just as a participant.

Get an understanding of the issue as well as possible consequences, develop a plan, and identify the actions you will enforce to restore the balance and order.
