Problem framing is a tool to align stakeholders and develop accurate design solutions and therefore helps to understand the problem per se.

The purpose of design is to solve problems. Its added value is not only derived from shaping good solutions: it is equally about getting the problem right in the first place.

Often enough in practice though, gaining an accurate, shared understanding of a design problem is neglected in favour of intense involvement with potential solutions. Which can lead to situations later in the process where it turns out everyone involved has a completely different set of unspoken assumptions on the underlying issue, or you may even discover you've developing the perfect response to the wrong question.

In his talk and in the slides, Rupert outlines the benefits of (re-) framing problems as a universal design technique and shares practical tips for shaping precise and actionable problem statements.
