The next time I run into a “social problem” I want to have my workplace address, I’m going to SCOPE

Gabriele Bammer outlines two frameworks to think about approaching social problems.  I find them particularly useful as they help us to recognize a person’s place, context and possibilities.  Useful to keep in focus over time —years, as my understanding from experience with actions on what to focus on and try to advance in the workplace and beyond, change.

There is some overlap between the two sets of questions, but there are also important differences in focus, which suggests that using them together will be most productive. The point of the questions is to be provocative rather than directive in order to expand considerations about understanding and acting on the problem.How do you go about scoping? Are there other tools that you can share?
