Lynda.com online course – “Critical Thinking”

April 5, 2017

Critical thinking is both a mindset and the application of some simple tools. So many times when people ask us, "Can you go solve this problem," we rush off and start solving it without stopping to think before we do. We're facing new demands that require extensive amounts of information before we can make a decision. There are multiple departments involved in all of our problem-solving efforts, and each department is contributing its own input. The critical thinking process is what's going to differentiate the solutions we develop versus rushing off without any thought at all. It is the ability to think reflectively and independently in order to make thoughtful decisions. By focusing on root-cause issues, critical thinking helps to avoid future problems that can result from actions.
