  2. List all indicators (including stated “problems”) that something is not as expected or as desired.
  3. Briefly analyze the issue with theories found in your textbook or other academic materials. Decide which ideas, models, and theories seem useful. Apply these conceptual tools to the situation. As new information is revealed, cycle back to sub steps a and b.
  4. Identify the areas that need improvement (use theories from your textbook)
    • Specify and prioritize the criteria used to choose action alternatives.
