If you have had any type of strategy course you would have probably came across the concept of frameworks such as Porter's Five Forces or the 4 Ps. In consulting, we use these frameworks along with issue trees to help structure our problems and our approach. These are the basic and most important problem-solving tools we can think of within the sector.
Understanding what these issue trees and frameworks are is essential to the job, since we use them on a daily basis. No consulting project is ever worked on without the use of issue trees.
In this quick course, we will explain the essentials of issue trees and frameworks before we move on to practicing them.
