Problem Solving Process

 The Turks usually say: "Apart from death, everything has a solution." We have prepared the steps you need to follow in order to solve the problems that you may encounter in all areas of life by trying not to panic. By following these steps, you will be able to define the problem better so that you will be able to see the steps you can take to reach solutions more clearly. 

1 – Define the problem

What is happening in your life? What happened to tell you that this was a problem? Explain the problem to yourself by asking these questions to yourself. Believe that what you define will be easier to handle.

2 – Gather information

What do you know about my problem? What could be the causes? What is the start date, what can it be? Try to gather as much information as you can. Whatever you know about this problem, put it all together! Has such a problem been encountered before? If so, how did they notice the emergence of these problems?

3- Analyze the information you collect

What are the main sources of problem? Try to gather information and analyze it until the information you have gathered answers the questions that will lead you to the source of the problem. If you have someone who has experienced the same or similar problem before, start analyzing the paths they have experienced and followed.

4 – Create solutions

There is a problem and you want to solve this problem. You have turned to the source of the problem, and you wonder if everything you do could systematically raise other problems, you search and try to analyze previous experiences as well. What did those people do, what results did they get, and are the results satisfying you too? List solutions worth trying. Brainstorm. If the problem is not something you have to tackle alone - and it usually isn't, try to get new solutions. List all these.

5 – Choose the appropriate solution method

By gathering all the information you could find, you went down to the root of the problem and created solutions, but considering which one might work well, it's time to decide what to do! You need to decide on the method you find effective by creating a positive - negative list and trying to be predictive. It sounds like a long process, but most of the time, when you manage to get to the root of many problems, even a small change you make can produce very good results.

6 – Plan your chosen solution method

The aim is not to eliminate the problem, not to create new problems. Plan how you will implement the solution method. While planning this, you will be able to see the problems that may occur and take precautions beforehand. Do not worry! Everything will have a solution, of course. You will decide how you proceed on the plan and now you will come to the stage of evaluating the returns of the solution you have chosen.

7 – Test / apply solution 

If you can, test it and decide on the next step to take by preparing reports based on the results. If you can't, apply it as soon as possible! Has your problem been solved? Does the result satisfy you? Evaluate them. 

8 – Keep improving your solution

Yes, we previously said "you want to create solutions, not new problems" but we know that changes occur in the constantly rotating world and the solutions found may not meet new expectations. This creates a problem. Before things get messy, create new awareness of the issue that solves your problem and try to improve them. Find ways to do this more effectively, for longer.
