• To find a solution – you must first know what the
problem is…..
• Dig deep
• Isolate the root
cause
• Use your team’s
collective thinking
Identifying the Need
Problem Solving
• Challenge:
– Preconceived ideas with a solution in mind
– Jump too quickly to “solve it” mode
– Conflict and disengagement

Develop a collective understanding of the problem
• Use data as much as possible
• Ask colleagues outside of the team to verify the
team’s thinking about a problem
• Write a problem statement
Beware: Lengthy and challenging process
Analyzing the Problem
• Four key questions (Let’s Four Square)
– Why is the problem occurring?
– Where is the problem occurring?
– How big is the problem?
– What are the biggest drivers of the problem?
