The term ‘Critical Thinking’ was first used by educational philosopher John Dewey, one of the prominent educational reformers of the 20th century.
He created the basis of many educational frameworks we use today, such as problem-based learning and hands-on learning. He led the adoption of critical thinking as a goal in the American education system.
You can develop your critical thinking and decision-making skills by building foundational thinking, remembering, understanding and applying; and then by analysing, evaluating and creating.
There are different strategies to approach solving problems with critical thinking. Here we’ll look at elements like choosing your approach based on the problem you have to solve or the team available.
In business, you’ll need to make a myriad of decisions ranging from which issues to deal with first, all the way through to solving complex issues with products, policies and activities.
Decisions in business are often accompanied by complicated considerations like data and reporting, existing business rules and flow-on effects.
