About the event

This workshop teaches you about useful tools that will help you solve complicated business problems. By using these techniques, you can start to tackle problems that might otherwise seem huge, overwhelming, and excessively complex. As such, these tools give you a starting point in solving problems that would leave other people feeling helpless, and intimidated by the situation. The workshop starts with some simple complexity skills. It then moves on to look at more powerful, 'industrial strength" techniques like use of Flow Charts, SWOT Analysis and Risk Analysis.
