Once you get started asking questions in a critical thinking exercise for one topic, you begin to address other unresolved topics.
I attended an instructor led leadership training session a couple of weeks ago.
A global study carried out by Macat in association with The University of Cambridge, discovered that 84% of senior managers believe their organization suffered a loss due to an absence of critical thinking in their workforce.
Concerns center on a recurring failure of many employees to analyse data correctly due to a focus on developing job-specific skills, rather than those that can be applied to new and changing situations.

Macat Critical Thinking Assessments are delivered on a powerful, all-in-one critical thinking assessment and measurement tool, helping businesses recruit and develop a next generation of business leaders.
Macat Critical Thinking i Library introduces critical thinking through analyses of the world’s most influential books, providing employees with an interesting and engaging way to read and learn, whilst also developing the skills that helps them to think smarter at work.This example is just one case of an alarming trend to “copy and paste” (Dunn et al., 2008) whatever we are exposed to without critically reflecting on potential consequences for us, our organization and the wider society.This is especially relevant since critical thinking is a key skill that has to potential to increase individual and organizational performance.It can be a long process that requires input from different people within the organization.The benefits to critical thinking make it a worthwhile practice for any small business.Critical thinking is about to become one of the most in-demand skillsets in the global job market.As automation and artificial intelligence have a greater and greater impact on the role of the human in the workplace, the need to stand out by developing advanced thinking skills like problem-solving, reasoning and creativity grows ever stronger.One of the benefits of critical thinking is that your company can develop multiple viable solutions to the same issue.This allows your company to offer a range of solutions to clients, and it also assists in workplace innovation.Several solutions to the same problem can allow your company to develop solutions that use the resources that are available as opposed to purchasing new materials.Customers benefit from having options to choose from in solving their problem.
