Webinar Conference Call


The business world and workplace today are dynamic, demanding, and challenging and call for critical thinkers, skilled problem solvers, and innovative decision makers. If organizations continue with existing processes, they will get the same results.  These results no longer produce world class and highly competitive organizations.  These organizations need professionals who view problems, challenges, and decisions as positive opportunities.  They are eager to:

  • Raise vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely
  • Gather and assess relevant information
  • Use abstract ideas to interpret information effectively
  • Come to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions
  • Test them against relevant criteria and standards
  • Thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought,
  • Recognize and assess their assumptions, implications, and practical consequences
  • Communicate effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems


ISM-NJ’s webinar, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, explores the critical thinking concept, its importance, and its attributes.  Participants will have an opportunity to identify their critical thinking strengths and weaknesses and gain tools to increase their ability in dealing with:

  • Assumptions
  • Innovative solutions
  • Root cause analysis
  • Thought processes
  • Problem solving
  • Decision making


The webinar promises to have participants begin to question existing processes and to break out of the “we have always done it that way” mindset.
