Problem Solving

Puzzles, Mysteries, and Muddles:
Naming and Taming the Problems that
Keep You Up at Night

Most of us have learned how to solve problems using analysis that produces a “correct” or “best” solution. However, not all problems are alike, and different types of problems require different approaches to solutions. Armed with an understanding of those differences, you will be able to gain a more nuanced view of a problem situation and see how to target your approach.

Einstein said that if he had an hour to save the world, he would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem and five finding the solution. Puzzles, Mysteries, and Muddles™ is based on twenty years of research by Jerry Talley, Ph.D., and will provide you with sophisticated insights and approaches that will enhance your success as a problem solver.
