Start with quality problem definition, including a list of questions to help: 1) define the problem; 2) decide who and what are affected by this problem; and 3) anticipate possible results. Learn where to look for information when gathering facts. Re-defining the problem is sometimes necessary once you have collected those facts. Developing and discussing alternative responses including brainstorming and brain writing methods will be presented. Evaluating the alternatives developed with the Eight Tests of the Workability of an Idea checklist identifies possible ramifications and the precedence of the decision being discussed. Use Factors to Keep in Mind when Making Decisions handout, as a guide to making the "best" decision. Identify where documentation fits into the process and what should be documented. Work-related situation practice is included throughout this session.
