Problem solving skills matter. Ninety-three percent of employers say that “a demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems” is more important than an undergraduate’s major when deciding whom to hire.
As a strategic thinking and problem-solving expert, Sarah Thrift has been up-skilling her clients both as part of her work as a consultant, and through teaching the courses she has developed. The high demand and great results from this highly specialized approach with clients led her to publish some key aspects of her materials in book form. Her book, Designing a Strategy That Works, provides invaluable techniques for navigating and resolving your most pressing issues, from initial problem definition through to preparing for successful implementation.
