Introduction
Analytical is the use of analysis to solve problems. Analysis is the breaking down of problems into smaller problems that can be solved separately. It usually uses a process that directs it towards achieving a certain goal.

When gathering and analyzing information, analytical skills are put into practice as well as when designing and testing solutions to problems. In management, analytical skill is the ability of dividing problems into parts so that you can visualize their relationships. Managers can plan and lead projects successfully if they have analytical skills.

Each one of these problems is centuries old and all attempts to solve them have failed. Each event has a cause. It is hypothesized that the main reason is reliance in an approach that does not fit the problem and this approach is the informal intuitive problem solving process. The environmental movement has since failed to make progress as urgently as needed. As a result the movement is losing its credibility with the government, public and donors.
