PD6: Problem Solving gives students the knowledge and skills they need to approach and tackle complex problems in the workplace. Effective problem solving isn’t as simple as snapping fingers and making a decision — it takes creativity, communication, and careful analysis. Students who take PD6 work through sample problems using a systematic process and make plans that are flexible and robust enough for use in any workplace.
What do PD6 students do?
- Apply systematic problem-solving models and decision-making tools to case studies
- Create a problem-solving action plan for future use in the workplace
- Reflect on their personal approach to problem solving
- Connect their experience solving problems in the workplace or during academic study to lecture concepts
How are PD6 students graded?
PD6 students complete a series of questionnaires and written exercises over the course of the term. To pass the course, students must earn an overall grade of 50% or higher. Students can deepen their learning by completing a bonus assignment worth 5% during the term.
