Abstract
Throughout the past 70 years, a great deal of research conducted on defining and testing problem-solving skills has led towards solution-focused practices and philosophies. As a result, some literature exists illustrating the efficacy of solution-focused practices. However, no published research exists on the factors that contribute to solution building. This study tested for components of solution building while creating a solution building inventory. Factor analysis failed to find specific factors within solution building. The results indicated that solution building is a unidimensional concept. Implications for using the solution building inventory are discussed.
