Ready-Aim-Fire Problem Solving - A Strategic Approach for Innovative Decision Making,
Geof Cox, Oak Tree Press, Dublin, 2000. ISBN 1-86076-172-0
Problem solving and decision making are essential tools for everyone in a management position, and with the increasing use of team working it is now becoming a skill that all employees need to develop. This book will help you become much better at analysing problems of all kinds and determining the best course of action to take.

Using models that are well researched and empirically sound, the book gives the reader an insight into their own personal and preferred style in approaching and solving problems, and provides helpful advice on how to work with people whose preferred styles and approaches are quite different.

Packed with exercises, case studies, checklists and examples drawn from real work situations - including customer service, quality improvement, innovation and change management — Ready-Aim-Fire Problem Solving offers a highly practical and entertaining approach to a fundamental skill in today's workplace.

"Ready-Aim-Fire in action means using a template as a guide to problem solving, not following cast-iron rules that may not be appropriate for the situation" John Mulqueen, Irish Times

"The best thing about this book is that once you have discovered your strengths within the Ready-Aim-Fire sequence — and thus discovered your weaknesses— Geof gives you specific techniques to fill those gaps." Walt Hopkins, Castle Consultants International Ltd.
