For those identified problems with many causes and effects, there are potentially many solutions, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The solutions may impact just one of the effects or may impact several effects. The goal this week is to generate at least two solutions based on the critical review of the problem. Once you have generated some solution ideas, select two potential solutions and identify the advantages and disadvantages of each solution. What positive social change might result from each solution? Going beyond solutions identified in the research literature, if you could oversee the implementation of your solutions, what ideas do you have that could result in a successful solution to the problem? You will share these with your peers; pay particular attention to their responses about which solution might work best in alleviating the problem/issue you selected.
Review the Learning Resource document “Problem Solution Preparation.”
Review the Learning Resources related to positive social change.
Review the causes and effects that you described in Week 7.
Think about some potential solutions to your identified problem and the advantages and challenges of each.
Think about the social change that could result from the potential solutions.
From the Learning Resources “Social Change Series” web resource, choose and review one or more of the social change webinars that are of relevance and interest to you. Think about your Capstone problem and how you might promote positive social change.
By Day 4
Post a description of two potential solutions to the problem, based on the literature that you have researched for the Capstone Project, and explain the advantages and challenges in implementation of each solution. Be sure to support your solutions with scholarly literature.
Also, explain the potential for positive social change for each proposed solution, and discuss how you might promote positive social change.
If you could direct the implementation of each solution, what other ideas do you have that could lead to a successful resolution of the problem?
