Facing a complex problem, a critical task is to actively drive structure into it. One way to do this is to frame the problem using a situation-complication-question (SCQ) sequence.

A SCQ is a great way to frame your problem; that is, to summarize what’s relevant for your problem. You can develop better SCQs by following four basic rules: backpack, rabbit, Dolly, and Watson.
