The update includes more techniques to develop out-of-the-box problem-solving creative solutions for seemingly impossible challenges. Dr. Wright uses a 9-dot puzzle example that can only be solved by drawing lines outside the original nine dots to emphasize the value of shifting one’s perspective outside the pre-defined space.

Dr. Wright explains that the Problem Perspectives class will help students first capture the initial problem statement, use perspective positioning to create an alternative problem statement, create an alternative problem statement with multiple perspectives, and evaluate the alternative problem statement.
A “problem” is often conceived as an event or circumstance that highlights the discrepancy between the current state and some desired future state. Traditional schools of thought followed a linear pattern of logic; where Y must be applied if X is observed, and so on. While this has several benefits for most problems, there are some modern challenges that require a more dynamic way of thinking.
This is evident in today’s business landscape, where many executives are challenged to solve problems that don’t have a precedent. Applying an old – though reliable – strategy for an entirely new event may not be as effective or efficient as intended.
The Problem Perspectives course re-works traditional thinking and encourages students to change their perspectives to refine the initial problem statement. By delineating from fixed schools of thinking or emotionally-charged responses, students learn how to identify a better problem to solve.
The class includes a one-hour on-demand video and nine downloadable resources that students can complete at their own pace. Students who finish the program and submit all course requirements will receive a certificate of completion from Macadamia Solutions.
