Problem solving

It is an open eneded discipline of study for solving problems in academic or daily life not randomly but systematically and efficiently at low cost using a rich set of abstract tools and techniques.

These powerful tools and techniques are created from experience analysis and abstraction of usable resources spread over many subjects such as Management, Computer Science, Maths and so on. This approach enables us to apply a technique to solve a problem in Maths as efficiently as a complex business problem.


Problem solving concepts: general concepts for enriching daily life.

Problem solving principles: form the heart of the discipline.

Problem solving techniques: help to solve difficult problems quickly and elegantly.

Problem solving approaches: these are few but form the most powerful resource.

Problem solving tools: are many and of varied power.

Problem solving skills: what are the essential problem solving skills and how to enhance the skills are discussed here.

Critical thinking: is an essential element for creating new ideas.
