CRITICAL THINKING & PROBLEM-SOLVING
Making better decisions within an organisation is crucial to getting better results. In a complex organisational environment with competing interests and limited resources, effective decision-making can become a significant challenge. This course will help you overcome that challenge.
By applying a simple and structured approach to problem solving, new options will become clear. When identifying potential solutions, thinking critically provides the tools to determine the correct solution for each situation.
This course introduces you to the principles of 'critical thinking', then teaches you a framework to apply in the workplace.

"Learning and development had not been created as a continuous activity. Training was often one off interventions with the impact difficult to measure. Filtered has helped us change that in a short period of time. The cultural change it has driven in terms of reinforcing an expectation of continuous learning at all levels is the biggest achievement to me."
"We partnered with Filtered because we liked the idea of learners being able to tailor resources based on their knowledge gaps. The quality of reporting data provided allowed us to calculate an ROI of £1.80 for every £1 invested in a licence."
