The Solution section outlines the options for solving the problem you identified. When presenting possible solutions, consider whether they are something your audience can influence or act upon. And remind yourself of your communication goals: Why are you communicating with this audience? What do you want to accomplish?

Things to think about:

  • What changes can be made to the way things currently stand?

  • Who can make those changes?

  • What would it take to solve the Problem(s) identified?
