The method How-How-Diagram is used when it comes to creating an implementation or action plan. It supports the logical-analytical approach and promotes tactical thinking in innovation projects. The targeted and in-depth How questions force the development of detailed action steps and the definition of relevant milestones.

On the one hand, this method can be used as an action plan or can support an existing action plan. On the other hand, it also helps to become more concrete with more general solutions or in preparation for an ideal implementation. The method is a planning tool.
