  10. 10. Triangle<br />Frame<br />
  11. 11. Using a Frame we <br />consciously determine clearly the PURPOSE of looking at the information.<br />The purpose of the Triangle Frame is to emphasize the fundamental importance of being clear and laying out the exact basis of your need for information & your interaction with the information.<br />
  12. 12. Purpose<br />
  13. 13. What<br />What is the purpose of<br />our information search or scan ?<br />?<br />Where<br />Why<br />Why do we need this information ?<br />Why is this information of value?<br />Why will this information affect us ?<br />Where should we look for <br />this information ?<br />Are we looking at the right place?<br />
  14. 14. Using a Frame in a meeting<br />“Ok team. I want to use the Triangle Frame here. We need specific information on heart disease amongst the youth.”<br />“Triangle Frames please. We will meet our prospective client tomorrow and we need to understand their requirement from the report in front of you.”<br />
  15. 15. Look for<br />Purpose<br />
  16. 16. 2<br />
  17. 17.
  18. 18. Circle<br />Frame<br />
  19. 19. Using a Frame we <br />direct our attention specifically to the ACCURACY of the information at which we are looking.<br />The Circle Frame invites us to look directly at the fundamental accuracy of information and not to take accuracy for granted. <br />
  20. 20. Accuracy<br />
  21. 21. Using a Frame in a meeting<br />“Ok team. I want to use the Circle Frame on the statistics presented here in the report.”<br />“Please Circle Frame on that opinion will you.”<br />“Be careful with your assumptions guys. Use the Circle Frame to ensure the credibility of our report.” <br />

  23. 23. 3<br />
  24. 24.
  25. 25. Square<br />Frame<br />
  26. 26. Using a Frame we <br />consciously look for ALTERNATIVE POINTS OF VIEW or balanced view when looking at information.<br />The Square Frame suggests us to look at the information from another “side”, ie. from another perspective or in a different way.<br />
  27. 27. Point of<br />View<br />
  28. 28. Using a Frame in a meeting<br />“Ok team. I see the report seems to be balanced. But, I’d like you to put on the Square Frame to see whether there is any bias on the conclusions.”<br />“My Square Frame tells me that this information is very one-sided. Please use the Square Frame to see from another angle. We may reach a different conclusion.”<br />
  29. 29. Look for alternative<br />Points of View<br />
  30. 30. 4<br />
  31. 31.
  32. 32. Heart<br />Frame<br />
  33. 33. Using a Frame we <br />direct our attention to matters of INTEREST.<br />The purpose of the Heart Frame is to encourage us to make effort to note matters of interest when these are not quite so obvious.<br />You could call it also ‘reading between the lines’.<br />
  34. 34. Interest<br />
  35. 35. Using a Frame in a meeting<br />“Heart Frames everyone. I know this report is dull, but I want you all to use the Heart Frame to see whether there is anything interesting.”<br />“He is not good with the Heart Frame. He couldn’t see the great ideas underlying the proposal unless you point them to him.”<br />
  36. 36. Look for Interest<br />
  37. 37. 5<br />
  38. 38.
  39. 39. Diamond<br />Frame<br />
  40. 40. Using a Frame we <br />clarify the VALUES of the information through direct attention.<br />The importance of values may be subjective, but the existence of values is not. Your Diamond Frame should reveal all possible values – even ones you do not give much importance to. <br />
  41. 41. Value<br />
  42. 42. Using a Frame in a meeting<br />“Ok Team. What have we learned from the discussion. What has been the value here. Let’s put our Diamond Frame.”<br />“Ok, let’s see whether there is any value of the information we just received. Diamond Frame please.”<br />
  43. 43. Look for Value<br />
  44. 44. 6<br />
  45. 45.
  46. 46. Slab<br />Frame<br />
  47. 47. Using a Frame we <br />deliberately lay out the OUTCOMES and CONCLUSIONS from the information.<br />We can not assume that people will come to the same conclusion when faced with the same information. <br />We need to spell out the conclusion in a clear and deliberate manner. <br />
  48. 48. Outcome &<br />Conclusions<br />
  49. 49. Using a Frame in a meeting<br />“Ok Team. Using the Slab Frame, tell me what is your conclusion.”<br />“Slab Frame please everyone. What are the outcomes of our discussion based on the information?”<br />“I think my Slab Frame conclusions are different from yours. Let’s discuss the differences.”<br />
