Deciding the Course of Action Kepner-Tregoe 1 Assume we have managed to define a collection of real problems, and we have also generated some potential solutions for each of those problems. Define the Problems Now, we must decide what course of action to follow: Generate Potential Solutions - decide which problem to address first - decide which actions to take vs this problem - select the best solution from our possible alternatives - decide how to avoid additional problems as we implement our chosen solution Decide a Course of Action Implement Chosen Solution Evaluation CS@VT Intro Problem Solving in Computer Science ©2010-12 Schaffer & McQuain
K.T. Situation Appraisal Kepner-Tregoe 2 For prioritizing multiple problems. Problem Definition Make a list of all problems. 1 For each, assign scores (H, M, L). Timing: How urgent? Trend: What is happening over time? Impact: How serious is problem? 2 3 4 Situation Appraisal Decide problem priorities Which K.T. analysis? (PA, DA, PPA) 2 1 4 For each problem, decide the next process to apply: Problem Analysis Decision Analysis Find the cause Correct the problem 3 Potential Problem Analysis Avoid future problems CS@VT Intro Problem Solving in Computer Science ©2010-12 Schaffer & McQuain
