Request Description

Here are a few examples of common problem solving methods brainstorming, trial and error, creative thinking, metaphorical thinking and the scientific method. Rotor failed to use any of the problem solving methods.   

What were Rotor’s problem-solving methods?

I was unable to identify a problem solving method used by Rotor. Rotors decision was based on minimal knowledge of the problem. 

What was insufficient about his approach?

Rotor did not efficiently frame the problem, outline his objective, consider the alternatives, or indentify possible solutions.

What in Rotor’s background caused him to frame and solve the problem the way he did?

Rotor allowed his ego and reputation cloud his judgment. His background reflected his ability to plausible decisions that benefited all parties. Fear of appearing incompetent forced Rotor to make a hasty decision. More than likely frustration also contributed to Rotors’ decision.

How might his approach be improved?

Rotors’ could have contacted the company that ships the doors. Express his concern with the late delivers or seek alternative suppliers. If the problem is not supplier related, speak to his personnel regarding the late deliveries.  

What is the importance of carefully monitoring symptoms prior to defining problem?

Monitoring the symptoms of the problems allows the problem solving to accurately frame or define the problem. Monitoring the symptoms provides a better understanding of the problem and possible alternatives.      

What factors influenced his decision to fire the assistant?

I believe pressure to perform and his reputation for making good decisions lead to Rotors’ swift decision. Rotor obvious felt challenged and ill equipped which contributed to his inaccurate decision to fire the assistant.   

 How could Rotor have solved this problem differently?

Rotor should have spent more time identifying the real problem. Assuming his assistance was solely responsible for the shipment problems makes Rotor appear inexperience. Rotor should have identified the cause of the problem and evaluated possible alternatives.
