Guide and Best Practices

The ‘How Might We’ method is a design thinking technique that creates an atmosphere for innovative solutions by reframing known challenges that surround your product service or initiative. Writing “How Might We” notes (or HMWs) is a collaborative exercise by teams at the beginning of a project or strategic initiative.

How to use the How Might We framework

  • Begin by opening a Creately workspace, you can invite team members to the same canvas and collaborate in real-time as you identify and record new areas of opportunity.
  • Start off by outlining the insights or pain points you have collected about your current design challenge or new initiative.
  • Now simply reframe those insights into questions that begin with, “How might we”.
  • Remember to be descriptive and solution orientated.
  • Consider the underlying factors that might be contributing to it, this is a great way to refine your questions.
  • Be sure to list down multiple solutions that could address a problem, this creates more opportunities for exploration.
  • A well-framed “HMW” question will contain the right amount of inspiration for you to quickly start brainstorming potential solutions.
