Tackling wicked problems is perhaps one of the toughest challenges any of us can face. The reason for this is that wicked problems have no ultimate solution. Working with linear cause and effect logic won’t be sufficient to tackle wicked problems as the different cause and effects might have no direct observable relationship.
Wicked Problems are sneaky – they like to hide
To make things even worse, wicked problems are not only those huge issues, like global warming, but they often hide out in apparent straight forward tiny problems.
Wicked Problems constitute a major hurdle in the research process
From our last residency and recent webinars, we learnt that several of us were struggling with our research because we are confronted with either a wicked problem or with an apparent linear and tiny problem located within the context of a wicked situation as outlined above. As a result, some of us feel overwhelmed and struggle to decide which strategies to use to take our research project further.
This is why training is needed on how to Tackle Wicked Problems
With wicked problems posing serious challenges to the novice and experienced researcher alike, the DoctorateHub have developed a webinar to help us. This webinar will attempt to shed some light on how to Tackle Wicked Problems.
The webinar will be held on 16th February 2019 at 12.00pm GMT (UK) time. To register click here. Once registered, participants will be forwarded the webinar link to dial into.
