What is the last step in problem solving?
What is the last step in problem-solving?
Well, I would say that it is solution implementation.
At the end of the day, we've got, we think we've come up with a solution, but if we don't know how to actually implement that solution, then we haven't effectively solved the problem. And I think there are four things that we can consider when it comes to solution implementation as part of problem-solving.
1. Foreseeable Roadblocks: Identify potential obstacles upfront—money, resources, personnel—to streamline the implementation process.
2. Contingency Planning: Develop a "Plan B" for when challenges arise. A clear "if this, then that" approach makes implementation smoother.
3. Constructibility: Break down the idea into actionable steps, specifying needed resources, timelines, and individuals involved.
4. Outsourcing Potential: Explore whether the solution could be efficiently implemented by external experts, optimising cost, quality, and efficiency. Embrace these four strategies to execute your solution effectively and bring problem-solving to fruition.
