Problem-solving and effective decision-making are essential skills in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing workplace. Both require a systematic yet creative approach to address today’s business concerns. This course will teach an overarching process of how to identify problems to generate potential solutions and how to apply decision-making styles in order to implement and assess those solutions. Through this process, you will gain confidence in assessing problems accurately, selecting the appropriate decision-making approaches for the situation at hand, making team decisions, and measuring the success of the solution’s implementation. Using case studies and situations encountered by class members, you will explore proven, successful problem-solving and decision-making models and methods that can be readily transferred to workplace projects.

It's a great course with important and nicely presented information. It could be even better if University Of California, Irvine would make it more informative and longer than it is right now.
This course has introduced me to different and useful methods of solving problems that I am excited to try applying on different issues. Thank you for providing it.
Basic course about therethical models to make decisions within standard situations in the work environment. less relevant for making individual decisions in the workplace.
The course was straightforward and simple but I had trouble identifying the different modes from the notes. Overall, it was still very easy to grasp.
