Generate hypothetical solutions.
Use our Hypothesis Generator tool to create potential solutions.
A hypothesis is a declarative statement that has not been established as true. It's a potential explanation.
Create Hypothetical Solutions
Take a look at the situational logic inherent in your problem. Pay particular attention to what factors and forces are at work - at a particular time and place.
Step 3: If you haven't already, you may want to get an overview of the tools we've made available to you for generating new ideas. Please take a quick look at the Create Solutions section of our Toolkit.
Step 5: Use our Brainstorming tool to create new ideas.
Step 6: Consider historical examples of how you or others may have solved this type of problem in the past.
Step 7: From the information that you have developed above - extrapolate potential outcomes.
Step 8: Create as many alternative solutions as possible.
Step 9: Use our Multiple Hypothesis Generator tool to redefine and modify: Who, What, When, Where, Why, How, From Where, and To Where.
- Multiple Hypothesis Generator: Use this tool to create multiple possible solutions.
- Hypothesis Testing Matrix: Test and rank your solutions.
- Rival Hypotheses: Create other ways to explain the same set of data.
- Analysis of Competing Hypotheses: Free computer program to evaluate multiple hypotheses.
- Create Solutions: This section of our Toolkit has many other tools for generating solutions.
