Problem solving


  • Critical thinking as careful collection and analysis of information or knowledge with ongoing reconstruction of one’s understanding of issues based on newly accumulated evidence
  • Recognising the potential an idea has for creating value and identify suitable ways of making the most out of it
  • Assessing the consequences of ideas that bring value and the effect of entrepreneurial action on the target community, the market, society and the environment
  • Reflecting on how sustainable long-term social, cultural and economic goals are, and the course of action chosen
