Problem Solving and Creativity
What is common with all jobs?
To be successful you MUST solve problems. Problems like:
the books not balancing (Finance),
inventory shortages (Logistics)
getting the right people in right job (HR)
unhappy clients (Customer Service)
those unhappy clients suing (Legal)
not being visible to customers (Marketing)
getting the product made on time, on schedule (Operations)
technology failures (IT)
meeting a deadline (Project Management)
You see it everyday.
A problem arises and the better you are at “fixing” the problem, the better you are at your job. Come to think of it, all a job really is is a series of solving problems. As we transition into this next decade, and automation is routinely taking the place of repetitive and systematic jobs.
