This checklist will help you when trying to solve a problem in the workplace. Here, you'll be able to see a list of questions to ask yourself to help guide you to a solution to any workplace problem.

Asking Questions to Solve Problems

As supervisors, we come across many problems to solve throughout each day. These problems might be small, such as how to create a schedule for making coffee each day, or they might be large, like how to increase profits for the fourth quarter.

With any problem however, asking questions is the way to finding a solution. In this checklist you'll find what, why, when, where, and who questions that will guide your thinking around any problem you might run into.
