Ideas come out of realising that there is a problem to solve, that something isn't working properly.
There is in fact a sequence of events in problem solving. The basic steps are:
- Realising that there is a problem,
- Identifying & describing the problem,
- Finding solutions,
- Picking a solution(s), and
- Implementing the solution(s).
At the end of this, you are in a new situation. Maybe the solution worked perfectly, maybe not. If it didn't, then you need to repeat the sequence until you get to a point where you have the best possible result.
