Business 101: Be More Systematic w/ Solutions

Today’s lesson is an extension of the previous topic.  You see, sometimes our multitude of options doesn’t involve various brands or businesses.  We could have an established business, brand, product, or service.  Or we may not have anything that is firmly developed but we know exactly what we want and our locked in.  So locked in, that when problems arise, we are willing to try every idea at once to succeed.  Every idea is considered valid and every person that wants to help is welcome.  But that “give it all you got” method of solving a problem in my opinion isn’t the best.  We must look at problems like a science experiment where you have a control group and the non-control group where several variables are adjusted to observe results.  If we change too much at once it makes it harder to know what the root cause is.  Additionally, we maybe miss how some of the changed variables intertwine and impact each other.  So, like an experiment I would recommend making a change, observing the result, debriefing, and deciding what the next course of action should be.  How fast or slow you work thru each solution is dependent on your timeline.  If you leave enough observing time between changes to fairly evaluate the results you can go as fast as you want.  Systematically working thru solving a problem is a tried-and-true method to bring life to potential solutions.
