For the past few years, I am hearing a lot about problem-solving(PS) skills. The curriculum has been redesigned focussing on problem-solving and everyone seems to be talking about it. Job Descriptions are using such words which were not so common 10 years back.
So my question is why PS has suddenly become so important now. I know it is important but I am asking what is causing this sudden surge in the demand for problem-solving skills.
Thank you very much.
