Learn to use structured approaches to solve a variety of real-life problems.
Identifying and clarifying the problem
It's not uncommon for people to end up solving the wrong problem! We will look at how to ensure you are solving the right one.
There are often multiple ways to solve a problem. We will look at how to find a number of solutions.
If you have multiple potential solutions, how do you know which is best? We will look at how to evaluate solutions.
Throughout the course we will solve a variety of set problems which will allow you to try out the techniques learnt.
