Our focus: CP4I
Differences between Challenges and Problem -- Challenges are broad, while Problems are specific and focused.
We should be looking at problems that others think that is is not a problem.
See problems as to as an obstacle, but as a challenge
…So, we do not want to phrase the problem as a sentence/statement, but as a question.
"whoa I have to remember all these things." vs. " I will score this well, and show that I can apply what I learn."
How do we keep smokers 5 meters away from the bus stop?
examples given by S1-04:
Attach smoke detectors
Use chairs that pushes you off when it detects smoke
Put the ash tray 5 meters away from the bus stop. however, people would not walk as far to throw their cigarette buds away. They might just throw it on the ground.

Characteristics of Problem statements:
Question form -a good problem poses a question rather then making a statement.
Invites ideas- a good problem statement invites you to generate many rich ideas
Free of limiting criteria- It should not box you in or limit your thinking by being filled with limitations, restrictions, qualifications or criteria
Concisely states- it should be brief and to the point so it will be easily understood and readily used as a starting point for generating ideas.
