Problem Types

Collaboration becomes even more complex if those working together do not see the problem similarly. Some representatives tend to move a faster/slower pace. Some tend to be (or believe themselves to be) very rational – while others are intuitive. One approach in a problem solving matter is to consider whether we see the matter as a similar type problem – Type I, Type II or Type III. This can make a large difference in how the matter should be approached. ┬áSee the definitions below. The Collaborative Process needs to adjust to the differing view of which Type the group is approaching.
