The SLCT process provides a structure for initiating FAST critical reflection in the face of a decision problem or opportunity.

FAST critical reflection involves Formulating and Analyzing issues, Synthesizing insights, and Translating the insights into action. 

Each step produces a corresponding document and can be further structured using other methods. The SLCT ("select") process can be used to formulate issues early in critical reflection; while the SCOPED process can be used for analysis; and the S5 model can be used for synthesizing insights.

The SLCT process focuses on helping people formulate issues and generate an agenda, issue list, or question list for upcoming meetings.

SLCT can be combined with the SCOPED process, which is designed to help people document, analyze, and record the resolution of their issues as they generate insights and develop a strategy.
