Situation Expert impacts work directly
Sitches (Situations) help in the following ways:
Fix, solve and improve work issues.
Impact work results.
Accelerate sharing of experiences.
Create reliable and dependable answers to work problems.
Reduce the gap between learning and applying.
We define expertise as capacities to "think through" problems and finding solutions. Anyone who "knows something" and "can do something" is an expert in his/her own area. He or she can contribute and share expertise no matter how narrow or expansive.

The Sitch (Situation)
A Sitch can be a challenge that the company/organization is facing or needing to reach out for help in solving. Sitches are situations, jams, issues, errors, gaps, troubles, stoppages, employee challenges and many others to fix and solve. They are also opportunities to improve, grow, expand, and introduce better, faster and cheaper ways to get the desired results.
After you create or review the Sitch, enter your Instant Thinking. Instant Thinking are initial thoughts, intuitions, gut feels, guesses, preliminary ideas, sometimes half-baked ideas but are helpful in brainstorming. These are based on your first impressions and instant recall of whatever memory you may have. In Deep Dive Thinking, you will do more deliberate thinking.
Fix Sitches with the help of the different available Actions which enable analysis, critical thinking, assessments, visualizing, seeking patterns, learning from others, sharing work and collaboration. There are 20 Deep Dive Thinking Tools.
