[Problem] Focus on the Problem or the Solution?
Which do you focus on, the problem or the solution? Josh Makower says the problem. But most problems don’t require a purchase, only a solution with given resources. cereal decision fan problem solution When you focus on the solution you have closed yourself off to all the other possibilities. Case in point. I heard a story once (and I will probably butcher it, but no matter) where a breakfast cereal plant was getting empty boxes coming down the production line in unpredictable intervals. The solution? Of course. That worked until it didn’t. Iterate.

[Problem] Tackling Wicked Problems Using an Iterative Approach
Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and wellinformed just to be undecided about them. Peter Recently, while doing a keyword search for complexity , I stumbled across an article called Wicked Problems. It defines wicked problems thus: A wicked problem is one for which each attempt to create a solution changes the understanding of the problem.

[Problem] Gamification of Problem Solving
'Gamification of ProblemSolving: It’s a relatively new term and may be a little trendy, possibly overhyped, and tends to be misunderstood as a subject. In essence gamification presents an innovative way to solve realworld problems in a simulated environment. How can you solve problems through Gamification? According to Karl Kapp, he states that: “ It is one thing to teach someone how to solve a problem using gamification techniques; it is another to actually have people work on the problem itself. Building the case for Gamification ProblemSolving Success.

[Problem] Not My (Training) Problem
As learning professionals, we often are approached with problems that are really about employees being hired poorly, incentivized inappropriately, managed badly, and not being given good tools for their jobs… in short, things that training can’t fix. But how often do we actually push back and say, “That’s not a training problem”? Maybe we just genuinely want to solve the problem.

[Problem] Understanding ProblemBased Learning
Problem Based Learning ( PBL ) is a learnerfocused pedagogy in which learning occurs through the experience of realworld problem solving, realizing that problems may have more than one defined solution and those problems will often increase in difficulty. Much research in the field of learning and behaviorism has proven that learners learn more when they perform realworld tasks, solve relatable problems, and then receive appropriate feedback during that same application. ITDL, May 2011 , pp.37] So what’s the ‘problem’? They are a passive audience.

[Problem] The Agile Elearning Design Manual: Problems with existing approaches
These roles are: The Project Manager The Instructional Designer The Builder The Tester and the Freelance/ Multidepartmental Graphic Artist Those roles are pretty representative of what happens on a software development team as well, except when you consider the following problems in their implementation: This is not really a team in the first place  people depicted in this group generally work on multiple things one of which is the client's elearning project. To be fair, the current solution definitely works well compared to the problem state it tried to address.

[Problem] You can’t solve problems you don’t know about
about reframing the design problem (soooo looking forward to those slides). Dan Lockton’s article in the guardian about sustainable design , which talks about how, if people aren’t doing things the way we would like, we should figure out how to solve their problems, rather than treating them as the problem. Getting to the problem. I think designers are often given solutions to implement, rather than problems to solve. If it was a solution, then they had to work on a way to get the actual problem clearly stated. So, this is hard.

[Problem] The problem with prework
Yes, because the biggest problem is calling it 'prework' in the first place. Time and again, trainers tell me that they have trouble getting trainees to complete their 'prework'. For some this failure has become such an obstacle that it threatens the whole basis of blended learning, which will typically mix asynchronous activities (which these trainers would categorise as 'prework' and 'postwork') alongside the synchronous (whether bricksandmortar classroom or its virtual equivalent). So is the concept of prework doomed? Well, yes and no. Other activities are optional extras.

[Problem] Gamification of Military Problem Solving
new wrinkle for the military is to use games to solve military problems or to gain insights into how to solve hostile situations. The newest effort is a combination of crowdsourcing and the gamification of problem solving. The military is creating a game platform they are calling Massive Multiplayer Online WarGame Leveraging the Internet (MMOWGLI) that will have over 1,000 online players who will playout the environment and situations involved with the problem of the Somali pirates. How could such an environment be used to solve business or societal problems?

[Problem] Can Social Learning Solve the Problem of High Unemployment?
There’s no disputing the real and continuing problem of our nation’s high unemployment rate. With With nearly 13 million Americans out of work and more than 8 million more underemployed, we’re faced with a serious lack of available jobs in this country. Or are we? According to the US Department of Labor, companies have been attempting to fill more than 3 million job openings per month since February 2011. So why the disconnect between workers looking to get hired and jobs going unfilled? In a word… training. The solution to this dilemma however, may already be here. Jeffrey A.
