The recent British Petroleum (BP) oil dilemma brings yet another problem solving opportunity to the forefront.  Fortunately, few of us have to deal with problems of this scope and magnitude.

Problem solving is a daily challenge for many of us and, like the BP oil dilemma, rarely are they presented in clear and concise terms. Our ability to define and describe the problem is typically compromised by our innate desire to solve the problem before we truly understand what the problem is – all in the interest of “saving time”.

Our experience suggests that the following problem solving anecdote is worthy of serious consideration to improve your problem solving initiatives.

The formulation of a problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill.

… Albert Einstein

Until Next Time – STAY lean!
