FIGURE 1: KNOWLEDGE PHASES IN THE PROBLEM HANDLING PROCESS

 

Sub-cycle 1: Defining the problem

phase 1.1    becoming aware of the problem and forming a (vague) mental idea

phase 1.2    extending the mental idea by reflection and research

phase 1.3    putting the problem on the agenda and deciding to handle the problem

phase 1.4    forming a problem handling team and starting to analyze the problem

phase 1.5    gathering data, exchanging knowledge and forming hypotheses

phase 1.6    formulating the conceptual model of the problem

 

 

Sub-cycle 2: Changing the problem

phase 2.1    constructing an empirical model and establishing the desired goal

phase 2.2    defining the handling space

phase 2.3    constructing and evaluating scenarios

phase 2.4    suggesting interventions

phase 2.5    implementing interventions

phase 2.6         evaluating interventions
