  1. 1) GOOGLE. Even in a huge organization (US Navy), troubleshooting an issue often began with “What does the oracle (google) say?”. It may return 1,000 pages of results, but the first 10+ usually give several perspective leads and angles.
    2) SME. Somebody somewhere has tackled the issue or something like it before. Look for that person in your network that has experience who’s capabilities you trust for insight to find the right data.
    3) The Horse’s Mouth. Whoever owns the issue or challenge has a unique perspective. They’ve gathered a lot of evidence around it. Of course, the solution is at the level above the problem.
