  • The Art of Scientific Thinking: Course Description and Schedule

    In this evolving and complex world, the scientific method of problem solving has become a key ingredient to the success of organizations. However, there is much confusion to which scientific method to choose.

    The course will take a dive into linear scientific method approaches (PDCA-A3 thinking-DMAIC) for students to learn how to tackle complicated and simple business problems with these techniques. In this course, you will learn how to quantify a business problem and set up a project team to solve it.
