About the Zoom Levels Template

Effective leaders understand that it is not always possible to solve every challenge. Instead, they focus on addressing the essential problems that are most critical to the success of their organization. They recognize that breakthroughs often arise not from immediate solutions but from skillful problem framing that enables solutions to surface.

One tool that can be used to examine a problem from various perspectives is the Zoom Levels Template. This technique involves considering the issue broadly to develop more innovative solutions. Ascending the ladder enables you to broaden your perspective by asking, "How might we?" This approach encourages you to think creatively and consider all possible solutions to the problem.

However, it is important to narrow your focus when confronted with an overly broad scope that hinders progress. This is where descending the ladder comes in. By asking, "What if we narrowed?" you can identify the most critical aspects of the problem and focus your efforts on finding a solution that addresses those specific issues.

Benefits of using the template

  • Question your assumptions.

  • Assist in realigning a problem statement.

  • Cultivate shared comprehension.

  • Guide the problem-solving process.
