Critical Thinking Skill Fundamentals

Introduction  

While being intelligent and passionate often results in work effectiveness and efficiency, that does not guarantee you to make a thoughtful and critical decision or solve a problem systematically. In times of crisis such as a pandemic or global recession, it is crucial that intense emotions and impulses do not cloud over critical thinking in the workplace. Professionals should apply critical thinking in all aspects of workplace operations, to avoid any kind of costly and recurring mistakes. From recruitment to marketing to finance, all the organizational departments must emphasize practicing critical thinking for undertaking any workplace decisions. Critical thinkers bring creative solutions to the table to solve business problems. If you are able to objectively evaluate information to make informed decisions while facing disruptions, you will have a much better chance to impress an employer. 

This course equips learners with problem-solving skills by developing the 5 core critical skills identified as pertinent to critical thinking by the Singaporean Government: Creative Thinking, Decision Making, Problem Solving, Sense-Making, and Transdisciplinary Thinking.
