The process frame encompasses the tools that we use to interpret the other frames.  Much like our frames themselves, these Process tools fall into two baskets:

Analytical Process – Those tools that we use to understand and interpret elements of the Individual Frames:

  • Analytical Tools – A collection of basic analytical concepts (materiality, delta vs level, consistency) which are both simple to describe, but quite profound in their implications.
  • Information Tools – The modeling and presentation of data, as distinct from statistical analysis.
  • Thinking and Learning – The meta-tools of the brain.
