Why Learn Investigation?

“If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the
problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”― Albert Einstein

Great problem solvers use a combination of intuition and logic to come up with their solutions. Investigative thinking is thus the ability to solve a problem, systematically. Whether you are a logical or an out of the box thinker, developing the investigative mindset to solve a problem systematically will help you make the right decisions to arrive at the best solution. In the shoes of a detective, you will develop a keen sense of observation, inquiry and critical thinking skills by way of solving an array of intriguing problems.
