Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Techniques for Effective Communication
Dr. Katherine L. Adams and Gloria G. Galanes established in their book “Communicating in Groups: Applications and Skills”. The techniques for problem-solving and decision-making for effective communication are;
- Task Difficulty: Some difficult tasks can be more complex. Groups have to be prepared to explore, and talking about a difficult and complex assignment with a specific end goal to add to a common foundational knowledge. This normally requires individual work outside of the group and continuous group meetings to share information.
- The number of possible solutions: There are generally different approaches to take care of an issue or complete an undertaking; however a few problems have more potential solutions than others. Some other problems may be creative based.
- Group member interest in the problem: At the point when group members are keen on the problem, they will be more drawn in with the problem-solving process and put resources into discovering a quality solution. Groups with high enthusiasm for and learning about the issue may need more opportunity to create and establish solution, while groups with low interest may incline toward a leader who gives structure and direction.
- Group member familiarity with the problem: A few groups experience a problem routinely, while different problems are more special or surprising. Many groups that depend on funding need to revisit a financial plan every year, and lately, groups have needed to get more innovative with financial plans as funding has been cut in about every sector. At the point when group members aren’t acquainted with the problem, they will need to do background research on what similar groups have done and might likewise need to invite professionals outside the group.
- The need for solution acceptance: Groups must consider what number of individuals their choice will influence and the amount of “buy-in” from others the group needs for a solution to be effectively executed. In difficult cases of decision making, groups will need to survey the individuals who will be influenced by the solution and may need to do a pilot usage to perceive how people respond. Forcing an incredible solution that doesn’t have a buy-in from partners can in any case lead to failure.
