PEST framework/DuPont analysis method/SMART principle based on macro environment analysis
Improve based on existing framework

Deduction is a process from general to special, that is, based on a known general law (major premise), a process of substituting a special premise (minor premise) to draw a specific conclusion
The correctness of deductive reasoning is based on 3 foundations
The universal law represented by the major premise is absolutely correct
Minor premise is a special case of the subject or object of the major premise
The judgment to derive the conclusion meets the necessary and sufficient conditions
Solving problems generally requires multiple deductive reasoning
A kind of diffused thinking mode presented by the brain when thinking
Broad thinking horizon, mostly divergent thinking, such as "one question with multiple solutions", "one thing with multiple uses", etc.
Seek solutions to problems in an unorthodox or illogical way, reverse thinking is an important way of thinking in horizontal thinking
Emphasizes seeking different ways and different paths of looking at things, emphasizing unconstrained ways of thinking
