Problem Solving and Decision Making is one of the most important developmental courses that organize the way of thinking for individuals when confronting problems in all their practical life and personal aspects. Throughout the course, a learners receives training on the systematic scientific methods to solve problems and make decisions, from onset of the problem with its virtual symptoms and knowing the problem identification tools, then how to work on analyzing the root causes for existence of the problem by applying the various problem analysis tools to reach a more deeper identification for the problem and how to setup proper solutions of the root causes until reaching an agreement on the best decisions to be implemented and developing a worksheet for implementation, follow-up and assessment of their effectiveness.
Application of a Problem-Solving and Decision Making Model becomes vital due to repetition of problems occurrence in the practical life with the same symptoms, which is very costly in terms of time, effort and money with no advantages. Therefore, the need for applying systematic scientific methods has emerged to assist in solving problems fundamentally and prevent their re-occurrence in future.
