Label approaches


Name the approaches

Introduction

Goals

Identify different approaches to the issue.

Why

To make a contribution, you will will need to chose an approach and then work within that approach to develop a position - this first requires you to identify what those approaches are!

What

In this technique you simply find similar / different groups of problem cases, solutions and definitions and give each group a name.

How

Steps

To label the approaches:

  1. look through your notes at each milestone
  2. look for points at each milestone that seem to represent 2 different problems, definitions or solutions
  3. give the different approaches different names.  Each name should be short, memorable and catchy
