18 Examples of Using Critical Thinking in Business

INSIGHT: teamwork

Investing in the training and assessment of critical thinking is a strategic decision. If you have been asking yourself whether you will see immediate value from an initiative to strengthen critical thinking in new hires, current employees or newly admitted business students, consider how critical thinking is applied on the job:

Business Critical Thinking in Action:

  • analyzing and explaining risks
  • designing & implementing initiatives
  • allocating resources
  • anticipating & preventing errors
  • analyzing markets
  • using & managing information systems
  • assessing opportunities & competition
  • evaluating the effects of initiatives
  • identifying & analyzing emergent concerns
  • developing data security protocols
  • evolving long term goals and plans
  • communicating effectively with team members
  • evaluating customer service
  • anticipating the implications of actions taken
  • hiring and promoting leaders
  • analyzing and resolving personnel issues
  • explaining policy and procedures
  • designing & evaluating departmental reports

The list of business critical thinking goes on almost indefinitely, particularly in high-stakes workplace settings requiring employees to engage unexpected problems and make time sensitive judgments.

It’s easy to see why critical thinking is highly valued by employers. Businesses can no longer afford to be mistaken about best thinking, when error rates are already in question, when difficult problems and decisions must be addressed, and where poor judgments can lead to irreparable damage and even cost lives.  

Building critical thinking strength throughout a business is an investment that pays off every day.
