I have adapted some of the Design Kit steps below and have a HMW Framing template

Based on the methods of Design Kit, Tom Barrett breaks the process of framing a problem into eight steps:

  2. List the stakeholders

  6. What are some possible solutions to your problem?
  7. Describe the context and constraints you have to your future ideas.
  8. Re-write a different version of your original HMW statement.
