Complex problem solving is a relatively new research domain that is based on the assumption that complex, real-life problem solving has been largely ignored by traditional problem solving research. In this article, we contrast the two dominant approaches to studying complex problem solving, the North American and the European approaches. We present a definition of complex problem solving and describe a theoretical framework that accommodates the theoretical and empirical strides that have been made in understanding complex problem solving thus far, and may serve as a guide for future research. We discuss the dominant methodological approaches that have been employed to study complex problem solving, and offer our own recommendations on which of the various approaches might be the most promising one.
