Overview

Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action. Effective problem solving requires a systematic approach to defining the problem (question or situation that presents uncertainty, perplexity or difficulty) and creating a vast number of possible solutions without judging these solutions. Problem Solving tools are a mechanism to discover and measure the root cause(s) of problems in order to arrive at the best solution possible. When used correctly they keep us from jumping to conclusions or moving to solutions to the incorrect problem
