9 Introduction: Problem Solving for Success Former Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, is credited with the quote, "The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year." Problems, also known as opportunities, issues, failures, defects, etc., come in many shapes and sizes and exist in every business and industry with varying levels of impact and complexity. There are a variety of approaches, methodologies, and techniques to solve problems, including ISO Corrective Action, Ford 8D, A3 Thinking PDCA, Kepner-Tregoe, Shainin, and Lean Six Sigma DMAIC, to list a few. A simple, efficient, and effective approach to problem solving is one of the most lacking and sought-after skills and competencies in business and industry today. Businesses need and want a simple approach to problem solving, one with predictable and sustainable solutions. This simple sevenstep, fact-based approach, called Problem Solving for Success, may be applied to any problem in any industry healthcare, construction, manufacturing, service, hospitality, non-profit, government, financial, etc. This guide to Problem Solving for Success is designed for problem solvers of all levels, regardless of their role, business, and industry. It combines the best elements of some of the simplest to most complex problem-solving approaches and methodologies into the following seven steps: State the Problem and Goal define the problem and goal statements that clearly and concisely represent the problem and intended outcome 1

10 Introduction: Problem Solving for Success Understand the Cause define the current-state process flow and determine with certainty the true root cause of the problem Confirm the Cause verify and confirm root cause of problem Construct the Solution develop and select a solution, determine potential issues with the solution, pilot and verify the solution, and define the future-state process flow Execute the Solution define and execute a solution implementation plan Sustain the Solution update processes, add controls, and train users Salute the Team recognize the team and celebrate success Problem Solving for Success is documented, summarized, and reported using the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report, as described in the following process steps, flow diagram, and depicted in the template. Problem Solving for Success Process: 1. A problem, issue, failure, or opportunity is determined to exist and requires action; initiate the seven-step process by completing the top portion of the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report 2. Define and document problem and SMART goal statements on the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report using the tools and techniques described in Step One: State the Problem and Goal 3. Define and document the root-cause statement on the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report using the tools and techniques described in Step Two: Understand the Cause 4. Define and document the root-cause verification statement on the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report using the tools and techniques described in Step Three: Confirm the Cause 5. Define and document the solution selection statement on the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report using the tools and techniques described in Step Four: Construct the Solution 2

11 Introduction: Problem Solving for Success 6. Define and document the solution implementation statement on the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report using the tools and techniques described in Step Five: Execute the Solution 7. Define and document the solution sustainment statement on the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report using the tools and techniques described in Step Six: Sustain the Solution 8. Define and document a statement of team recognition and celebration of success on the Problem Solving for Success Summary Report using the tools and techniques described in Step Seven: Salute the Team Employing the seven-step process of Problem Solving for Success will result in a solution that solves the problem and sustains the results. The ensuing sections and chapters provide detail and information necessary to apply the seven-step Problem Solving for Success approach to every problem of any size and complexity for every industry and business. 3

12 Introduction: Problem Solving for Success Based on the complexity, time restrictions, resource availability, organizational goals and needs, etc., Problem Solving for Success may be conducted with one of two approaches. Problem solving may be conducted as a project-oriented approach as described in the sevenstep Problem Solving for Success process sections of this handbook. Or, problem solving may be conducted in a condensed, event-based approach, as described in the Rapid Problem Solving for Success section toward the back of the handbook. The facilitator and team may use the following Problem Solving for Success Checklist to manage and track tasks and activities necessary to successfully complete the Problem Solving for Success process. It is divided by the seven problem-solving steps with key activities listed for each step. The facilitator and team may include additional key activities, as identified, and may choose to change the current activities from required to not required. The date each activity is completed is added to the checklist with any additional comments, as necessary. 4

13 Introduction: Problem Solving for Success Key to Problem Solving for Success is timely, concise, and appropriate communication. George Bernard Shaw was quoted as saying, "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place." As you execute the seven-step problem solving approach, you must ensure that in each step careful consideration is given to the impact on the many and various stakeholders and how that impact is communicated. Benefits of timely and concise communication include: Facilitates securing support for the problem-solving initiative Clarification of roles and responsibilities Status of the problem-solving initiative Updates on issues, risks, and changes Updates on activities, implementation plans, and training plans We wish you much success in your pursuit of Problem Solving for Success, thereby generating greater organizational value! 5
