About this course

This course is focused on teaching effective decision-making and problem-solving to learners. Critical thinking – the use of scientific methods and logical reasoning to problems and decisions – is the base of effective problem solving and decision making. It helps us to avoid common hindrances, test our opinions and assumptions, and rectify falsifications in our thought processes. You will gain confidence in assessing problems accurately, evaluating alternative solutions, and forecasting likely risks. Here, you’ll learn how to use analysis, synthesis, and positive inquiry to handle individual and organizational problems and develop the skills required in today’s tempestuous times.
