Your Key Job At Work

One of the key functions of the executive  is problem solving, which takes up as much as 50% of executive time.

It can be said with some confidence that your ability to deal with problems creatively and effectively is the key determinant of your success as a manager. It would be hard to imagine an effective executive who could not solve problems and make decisions with a high level of competence.
