9 step problem solving model
Best Results From Wikipedia Yahoo Answers Youtube
The Creative Problem Solving Process (CPS), also known as the Osborn-Parnes CPS process, was developed by Alex Osborn and Dr. Sidney J. Parnes in the 1950s. CPS is a structured method for generating novel and useful solutions to problems. CPS follows three process stages, which match a person's natural creative process, and six explicit steps:
CPS is flexible, and its use depends on the situation. The steps can be (and often are) used in a linear fashion, from start to finish, but it is not necessary to use all the steps. For example, if one already has a clearly-defined problem, the process would begin at Idea Finding.
What distinguishes the Osborn-Parnes CPS process from other "creative problem solving" methods is the use of both divergent and convergent thinking during each process step, and not just when generating ideas to solve the problem. Each step begins with divergent thinking, a broad search for many alternatives. This is followed by convergent thinking, the process of evaluating and selecting.
This method is taught at the International Center for Studies in Creativity, the Creative Problem Solving Institute, and CREA Conference. It is specifically acknowledged as a key influence for the Productive Thinking Model.

Answers:Add 5 to both sides 5x + 12 = 3x Subtract 3x from both sides 2x + 12 = 0 Subtract 12 from both sides 2x = -12 Divide both sides by two x = -6 Lather, rinse, repeat on the next problem.
Answers:Hi As per previous answer, steer clear of "management lingo". Real life experiences are priceless. My take on this is very simple: 1. Is there a problem in the first place? 2.If so,what is it. 3.Identify the easiest way of resolving it. 4.Put procedures in place to stop it from happening again. 5.Learn from all of the above. Hope this helps.
Answers:large pizzas will be x small pizzas will be y there were 38 pizzas sold in total so you know x + y = 38 (call this equation 1) you also know the total money made and how much each pizzas costs so: 12.50x + 9.00y = 415.50 (equation 2) using equation 1 you know that x = 38 -y, plug this into equation 2 12.50(38 - y) + 9.00y = 415.50 475 - 12.50y + 9.00y = 415.50 -3.5y = -59.5 y = 17 you now know that 17 small pizzas were sold plug this value into equation 1 x + 17 = 38 x = 21 Therefore 21 large pizzas and 17 small pizzas were sold
