Description: This course shows how to solve complex, ill-defined, non-immediate problems. It explains how to combine innovative and critical thinking to: -1- frame the problem, -2- diagnose the problem, -3- identify potential solutions, and -4- choose a solution and implement it. The approach is based on cases, each student will work on a project of their choosing. The course is equally applicable to academic and non-academic projects (such as consulting) in an industry; as such, it is open to students from all schools and departments. It is a part of a larger professional development initiative at Rice to equip students with skills that employers are specifically asking for. Cross-list: LEAD 545.
