You will be supported at intervals in live sessions by LEA Senior coaches to reflect and confirm your undertsanding after completing PPS steps through the case study exercise.


Skill Level 3 – Capability (Weeks 4 to 18)

About Our Teach Poster Concept

Where ever possible we try and use a visual “Teach Poster” to explain the subject matter. These are simple, imaged based triggers to remind you of the key concepts and learning points.

From our experience, we have found this to be the most effective way to teach others and enable them to share their knowledge quickly and easily with others.

Who Should Learn?

Who is this course for?


The first step in learning “Problem Solving” is to understand the different types of problems and methods available to solve them. As a guide to ensuring the right people get the right skills, we have developed a Problem Solving Framework as shown below (This is explained more in our Level 1 Course) which indicates “Who” should get developed in A3 Practical Problem Solving.

A3 8 Step Practical Problem Solving: Skill Levels 1 to 3 Coached
  • The A3 Practical Problem Solving method should be used by those people who need to tackle more difficult business problems (but doesn’t require the need for learning advanced statistics!).
  • It should be aimed at: Executives, Managers / Leaders and Functional Specialists etc. to enable them to tackle most medium and mid term business problems.
  • Organisational Improvement Leaders or HR leaders who need to teach and coach their own organisational leadership but need to learn the A3 PPS method first.
  • Note; once you have achieved Skill Level 3 to become Capable in A3 Practical Problem Solving, you will also be able to apply the simpler 4 step Rapid Problem Solving (RPS) method and tackle those frequent, smaller problems (that don’t require as much analysis) that occur day to day.
