Essential Skills Definition Review

Review of definition for Thinking Skills

HRSDC would like to change the definition of Thinking Skills to:

"Thinking skills involve mental processes used in cognitive functions that enable people to make meaning from, and create with, information: solving problems, making decisions, critical thinking, planning and organizing job tasks, using a significant amount of memory, and finding, synthesizing and analyzing information.

In the workplace, the various functions of thinking skills are applied to most tasks. Some examples include looking for details in a report, planning and coordinating activities such as meetings, recommending actions to be taken, and interpreting the results of a study."

What are your thoughts and comments about this change?
