Problem solving

It is an open ended 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.
