How to develop a “Logic Tree” for problem-solving

This is an exercise in my problem-solving class at Yokohama National University in Japan.


Drawing a logic tree to show a whole picture of the stakeholders in the university, assuming that the diagram is used to make priority to implement an evacuation program for earthquake.

The students are learning how to breakdown the people into small pieces to show more details (such as students, professors and workers etc.).

In such exercise, they learn what is the effective category and what is the appropriate level of information to make a decision and how to avoid to miss critical information.


They learned to use MECE technique in the exercise as well.

Following is another exercise in the class to re-allocate the boxes and make an effective logic tree.



And, here is an answer:


The key point of this exercise was to keep the same level of the issue in the same layer and to gain the skills to summarize small pieces of information in a logical way.


My programs are quite unique as they are designed for the  (undergraduate) students to gain very practical business skills.


If you are interested in those academic but extremely practical programs, please contact me.
