Create a blog entry relating your professional experience with the effects of context on problem-solving.
- Consider the following:
According to David Snowden and Mary E. Boone of Harvard Business Review (HBR), issues facing leaders can be categorized into one of five contexts. They are: (1) simple, (2) complicated, (3) complex, (4) chaotic, and (5) unclear as to which is dominant.
- In your course blog, address the following questions in light of the five contexts defined by Snowden and Boone:
What has been your professional experience with problem-solving?
Is there value in knowing in what context a problem exists? Why or why not?
How do McKinsey’s and Jain and Sharma’s theories fare in the face of these contexts?
