Multiple techniques for multiple solutions
Everyone has to deal with problems every day in one way or another. Some problems have obvious solutions; others do not. This course will help you deal with problems where the solution is less than obvious or where previous solutions have not worked as well as expected.
The more techniques you apply to a particular problem, the more potential solutions you will generate. This is demonstrated in the course where you can apply different techniques to the same example problem and different potential solutions are generated.
Once you have learned these techniques, you may well start actively hunting for problems to apply them to!
