3. Conduct your analysis. What are the possible causes of the problem or issue? What alternatives are possible given the facts presented? This is the most time-consuming step, and the step with the greatest variation. There may be many possibilities. It might be helpful to list all the solutions you can think of before focusing on the most useful or valid. There is not necessarily a right answer, but there may be several alternatives that lead to varying outcomes.

4. Make recommendations. Choose the recommendation you believe to be the best, justify it, and develop it. Recommendations may be made in the form of an action plan to solve the problem or issue. Or, recommendations may involve the choice of the best alternative for resolving the issue or problem. Recommendations made must be thoroughly developed and supported.
