Finding a solution for a tough problem unleashes new energy and gets things flowing again.

If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.
Albert Einstein

~ Albert Einstein The a3 solver typically:

  • depicts an issue;
  • analyzes the situation and its underlying causes;
  • identifies the required outcome;
  • proposes some corrective actions;
  • prescribes an action plan (who will do what when); and
  • creates a follow-up review process—all in one integrated A3-sized document.

Therefore:

Take a single A3 and describe the background, current situation and desired goals, as well as a number of experiments and ways to verify their outcomes.
