Variable Analysis CAN HELP YOU STOP GUESSING AND SOLVE THE HARDEST PROBLEMS IN ANY SYSTEM. 

These systems and processes can be physical, chemical, biological, electrical, digital, psychological, and organizational. It was created specifically for the most difficult and complex technical problems in industry, and has been used for decades to solve the problems that others declared "impossible."

Variable Analysis contains the following five steps:

  1. Define the Problem
  2. Describe the Problem in Detail
  3. Create the Variable Tree
  4. Eliminate Sub-Variables from the Tree
  5. Implement the Solution

Learning Variable Analysis will help you to practice and develop your skills as a problem solver. It will help you solve problems more quickly, report progress more clearly, work as a team with greater structure, and to coach and be coached.

No problem-solving method will make you a great problem-solver, and no method will solve a problem for you. Successfully solving hard problems requires smarts, rigor, effort, and employing the right behaviors. Becoming a great problem-solver takes hard work, practice, consistency, tenacity, learning, and exploration: Variable Analysis provides a structure to do all of these.
