Kepner-Tregoe (KT) have been leaders in the structured problem solving business for 60 years.  Sologic is a dynamic business offering a combination of RCA services supported by the software Causelink.  In the summer of 2018, KT and Sologic decided to try working together to offer a comprehensive set of analytical processes and tools with the goal of providing the best and most complete solution to the client.    KT’s end-to-end management framework consists of the following components:   Situation Appraisal:  How does a manager organize and prioritize their efforts given the barrage of issues they face?  KT Situation Appraisal provides managers with a way to develop a comprehensive understanding of what’s happening and what actions to take. Problem Analysis:  Problems represent significant deviations from the intended pathway.  KT Problem Analysis helps managers create an accurate and complete specification of the problem by examining what the problem is, as well as what the problem is not. Potential Problem/Opportunity Analysis:  It is best to solve problems before they happen.  KT Potential Problem/Opportunity Analysis helps managers with predicting and anticipating risks and potential future opportunities. Decision Analysis:  Managers need to decide the best way forward in an environment of uncertainty.  KT Decision Analysis helps a manager make the best possible decision when presented with alternative choices.  The Sologic process uses conditional (if/then) logic to analyze how combinations of causes work together to cause any event.  The result is detailed causal model that clearly shows how the event happened.  All conclusions are supported by evidence.  This produces an accurate representation of the problem, which then leads to the identification of a set of effective solutions.    The KT and Sologic processes complement each other in interesting ways without a lot of overlap.  This session will explore how these two methods can be used collaboratively to help identify a clear and complete understanding of the problem as well as how to most effectively solve it.
