Ensure The Bottom Lines
The third part of “Learn How To Think” is to learn to always think and concentrate on the bottom line issue of the subject or entity under consideration.
What is the bottom line matter or issue of an entity, such as a person, an organization or any subject?
At Orlando University, students are taught to always study and to seek the underlying conditions or issues that ultimately influence or relate to the existence, development, and sustainability of the entity as a whole. When a particular entity has a problem or issue to be solved, regardless of how complicated the entity might be, the solution(s) or approach(s) must relate to these three bottom-line issues. Otherwise, the efforts or resources could be wasted.
Today’s graduate students have been exposed to a wide variety of information, data and knowledge, and sometimes also asked to apply knowledge for the problem solving. The University believes that its students should improve such thinking ability or capacity, in addition to getting the big picture and knowing all unique or key features of the subject. This helps to ensure application of the correct knowledge for the right issue in real world situations.
