In todays business world, problems are becoming more complex with the addition of new technologies, an expanding global footprint and the interaction of many cultures. To deal with these challenges and remain competitive in this ever changing environment a business requires a new toolset. At its core, it must be a problem solving framework which has the ability to even the playing field by reducing "context bias" as well as providing structure to the solutioning process as a whole.
This is where the Phoenix Checklist comes in, rumored to have been originally developed by the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency). The "Checklist" provides a structured means of applying a detailed set of challenge and response questions to help define the problem and than create a plan for a solution. Yet there are many questions as to not only what is the Phoenix Checklist, but also how and why does it work? This is where the Phoenix Checklist - Turning Complex Problems into Simple Solutions helps to answer these questions.
As the author (an experienced problem solver) will introduce you to the Phoenix Checklist and a bit of its history. Than explore the idea of context bias and the role it plays in decision making and problem solving as this is the power behind the Checklist and understanding it will make the process even more effective. From here we will explore each question along with the sub-questions that form the Checklist and what it is asking as well as the advantage it brings to rationalizing the problem. Once complete, the same focus is then turned to the questions which provide the solutioning for the "Plan Phase" of the Checklist.
As one of the key strengths of thePhoenix Checklist is that the result to the "problem" is actually a "plan" rather than just an "answer". As "answers" are simply static results, whereas a plan is "dynamic" and allows for adjustment if needed. Than with both Problem & Plan phase discussed, in the final chapter, we will work to pull all the pieces together. As the idea is to provide you the reader a better understanding of the Problem/Plan - Bias Reduction framework and how to best apply it in the most effective way.
If your job involves solving problems, and lets face it whose doesn't these days, than you need a cutting edge framework to take you "out of the box". As the key to winning in the competitive business world today is solving problems and producing the best answers possible. The Phoenix Checklist is this toolset, conceived allegedly by one of the deepest thinking organizations in the world (The CIA), and honed for the business world by a seasoned problem solver with global experience to form a winning combination.
