    A Lesson in Simplicity and Problem Solving



Presented By:

Shon Isenhour 


Program Description:

This presentation looks at a process for simplifying complex topics for instruction while teaching the topic of problem solving. The attendee will see the use of the transitional root cause problem solving method as well as the use of single or one point lessons, flipped classroom material, and e-learning tools. The attendee should expect to leave the session with a better understanding of problem solving while also having examples that they can use to increase efficiency and effectiveness of their next training session.
