We can find structure when we create the scope for a data problem. A scope is the outline of a story of why we are focusing on this problem.
The scope of a project consists of four parts, which is expressed as the mnemonic CoNVO.
When a problem is well-scoped, we will be able to talk about the project easily. The story will have context, conflict (the need), a resolution (the vision) and a happy ending (the outcome.) Once we have done the thinking using the CoNVO structure, we can go and collect the data.

We find context when we know who we are working with and why they're doing what they are doing. We learn the context when we talk to them about their long-term goals. The context provides a project with larger goals and helps to keep us on track.
