Problem Solving is at the very heart of manufacturing. According to the 2020 World Economic Forum '10 skills you need to thrive in the 4th Industrial revolution' (WEF Jan 2016), the top 4 skills necessary for Management Success are: 

  • Complex Problem Solving

  • Critical Thinking

  • Creativity

  • People Management

But solving problems is only half of the story - knowing which problems to address, and what makes a good solution, is the other half. And i'm not talking only about the overall ability of your team to tackle everyday problems.


Having a Management Team aligned behind a clear strategy and with the ability to honestly and openly address obstacles to it's achievement is more than half the battle. If you'd like to know more about this, drop me a line.

"Working alongside Clark I found him to be thoughtful and logical in his approach to issues.
