Course Description

We all make decisions and solve problems continually.  Business today requires everyone to effectively solve problems leading to appropriate and profitable decisions.  Thinking skills may seem natural, but they are not necessarily intuitive, and they may not come naturally.  A good foundation of thinking skills involves analytic thinking and problem solving, breaking problems down into their component parts.  Effective problem solving involves deductive reasoning drawing conclusions from givens and applying judgments to reach conclusions from a combination of collected evidence and assumptions.
