When faced with business challenges, defining the problem is an important step, but it's only the first in a series of steps. Now comes the hard part: finding ways to solve the problem. Generating multiple solutions allows you to open up your thinking and reexamine your opportunities and possibilities. Studies have found that when decision makers considered two or more possible solutions, the average failure rate of an implemented solution dropped from 50% to 30%. Generating alternative solutions sets the stage for creativity, innovation, and success. It allows your company to pursue not just a good solution, but the best solution. In this course, you will explore the process of generating alternative solutions to business problems. You'll look at the types of information you need to gather before you can begin, ways to brainstorm creatively and productively, and how to use the ideas that come from it to fashion and solidify actionable solutions. Finally, you'll learn to identify potential pitfalls to generating solutions and how to mitigate or avoid them.
