Z Problem Solving Mode 2

In the last byte, we had a look at the diagrammatic representation of the Z-model of decision making. In today's byte, we look at in detail.

According to the Z model of decision making, a good problem solving model should have the following 4 steps:
  1. Examine the facts and details
  2. Generate Alternatives
  3. Analyze the alternatives objectively
  4. Weight the impact
In the first stage when we are examining the facts and details it is the sensing style that takes predominance and helps gather information about the problem. In the second stage, it is the intuiting style that could play a major role in developing the possibilities. In the third stage, it is the thinking that would drive the decision maker determine the effect of each alternative. The final stage uses the feeling dimension predominantly to determine how the people involved will be affected.
