Business success and the quality of employee thinking are inextricably linked. 

Businesses are impacted every day by the cumulative effect of the way their employees make decisions and solve problems. Progress and growth result from good decision-making; bad decision-making causes failures.  Many little bad decisions can be as catastrophic as a single poorly reasoned decision at the top level.

If you have been asking yourself whether you will see immediate value from an initiative to strengthen critical thinking in new hires or current employees, consider how critical thinking is applied on the job:

  • Diagnosing: workplace problems

  • Evaluating possible solutions

  • Analyzing emergent conditions

  • Planning long term strategies for growth

  • Evaluating relevant research

  • Communicating effectively with customers

  • Coordinating team efforts

  • Understanding implications of actions taken

  • Interpreting, analyzing and explaining risks

  • Anticipating action-related complications

  • Hiring and promoting leaders

  • Analyzing staffing needs

  • Explaining policy and protocols

  • Preventing errors of omission

  • Designing evaluation programs

  • Allocating resources

  • Using and managing information systems
