Here’s an exercise to practice your research skills. Earlier, I mentioned the 5WH (or Five Ws) technique for defining the problem. See what you can find about this technique, answering these two questions:

  • Are there any limitations or criticisms of the 5WH technique?
  • What other strategies are there for defining problems?

Post your answers below. When you do, include links to the source of the information you found.
