Data-Driven Systematic Problem Solving

**Please note that this training will be conducted in Chinese**


Data analysis and problem solving are two essential skills for modern professionals. However, when solving problems at work, do we often fall into the misunderstanding of "only treat the head when head hurts, only treat the feet when feet hurt"? Digitization makes it easier to obtain data, but do we often struggle to draw valid conclusions when faced with massive amounts of data? This course is designed to overcome the above dilemmas. It helps students reshape their problem-solving thinking and data-oriented thinking, and establish a way of thinking that combines systematic problem solving and data-oriented thinking. The course is systematic and practical:

  • Systematic: organically insert data analysis tools into a clear overall framework of problem-solving method. Students will master a systematic approach rather than discrete tools.
  • Practical: With a work-related simulation game embedded, students could actively practice the tools. Not only to learn the "what" and "why", but also master the " how" and achieve visible results onsite.


  • 系统化:从思维方式入手,为学员搭建起清晰的问题解决逻辑框架,并在合适的步骤中有机地插入数据分析工具,内容关联紧密。学员将掌握系统性的方法,而非相互割裂的单个工具。
  • 实操性:课程贯穿一个贴近工作场景的沉浸式模拟游戏,学员将把所学工具带入该场景实操练习,不仅能学会"是什么"和"为什么",还能在培训现场掌握"怎么做"并取得可见的成果。

Target Audience/目标学员

Professionals in all industries and positions who is in need of data analysis and problem-solving.


Teaching Method/授课形式

Through this course, participants will be able to:

  • Change the mindset: get rid of their fixed pattern for problem solving and data analysis, while establishing a systematic problem-solving mindset based on data
  • Master the method: master a systematic problem-solving method
  • Upgrade the skillset: be proficient in using data analysis tools such as hypothesis testing, correlation analysis, regression analysis, etc., and mastering the logic principles
  • Solve a real problem: participants will solve a real problem through a simulation game, applying the methodology and tools learned in the training.


  • 改变固有思维模式:打破"头痛医头"和"被数据推着走"的固有模式,建立基于数据的系统化问题解决思维
  • 掌握问题解决方法:掌握 DMAIC 高效问题解决方法
  • 熟练数据分析工具:熟练使用假设检验、相关分析、回归分析等常用数据分析工具,并掌握背后原理
  • 解决实际工作问题:通过模拟游戏,在培训现场解决一个工作场景中的实际问题
