Analytical Thinking & Problem-Solving Skills

Date: August 26, 2019 - August 27, 2019 (2 days)

Thinking analytically is a way of thinking to solve a problem effectively and efficiently. Thus, this is why we need to think analytically. If the problem still could not be solved after thinking, then this means the thinking method used is ineffective. The use of inefficient thinking skills will lead to waste of time and resources.

The fact is that many people think they think, but the reality is that their thinking is shallow, not analytical and not logically based. Hence, this course is specifically designed to improve the ability of participants to think analytically so that the execution of problem-solving will be effective and efficient.
