My problem solving strategy involves looking at the problem and collecting as much relevant information as possible, elaborating the given information and waiting for a general strategy to develop. This of course happens after I understand the question and before I come up with strategy.
Many Problem Solving Strategies mention for example, Understanding, coming up with a plan, implementing the plan.
The strategies never mention the crucial event between understanding and coming up with a plan. What does your thought process involve while solving problems?
Or after understanding the problem, what measures ease your development of strategy?
