We’re now into the final stage of the process.
Defining the scope for possible solutions to a problem is essential because it sets boundaries and parameters for problem-solving efforts. It helps focus resources, time, and energy on viable options, preventing the exploration of irrelevant or impractical solutions. A well-defined scope ensures clarity, efficiency, and alignment with objectives, increasing the likelihood of finding effective solutions within constraints. It also aids in decision-making and reduces the risk of pursuing approaches that may not address the core issue.
