This downloadable Problem Solving and Decision Making Profile looks at an individual’s ability to solve problems and make decisions using seven separate categories.
This instrument provides a highly structured process through which to look at the whole topic of problem solving. The subject is therefore broken down into individual competency categories as follows:
- Critical thinking
- Data gathering and processing
- Tool selection methods
- Alternative weighing ability
- Lateral conceptualisation
- Perception and judgement
- Risk assessment skills
Participants plot their scores onto a histogram chart for each category. This quickly shows where efforts to improve should be concentrated in the future. Detailed interpretation notes are included for each category, including improvement actions for low scorers.. Note: This is the ministry-specificdownloadable edition of this profile.
