Summary "In the general range of our daily business problems, we try to see to it that solutions are based on good thinking. The trouble is, good thinking doesn't grow on trees--nor do good thinkers. Companies have real trouble finding people who know that, faced with a problem to be they have to do certain things, in a certain order, to solve the problem. Even such simple rules as finding out whether you have enough information, and whether the information is dependable, seem to be honored more in the breach than the observance. The rule that to solve a problem properly you must first state what the problem is does not always seem noticeably to influence the thinking of business people. It is quite clear too that many of the people who are trying to, succeed in business do not know that the rules exist.
