S.C.O.R.E. Model

Developed by Robert Dilts and Todd Epstein, identifies the components necessary for effectively organizing information about any change. The following five elements are necessary:

S YMPTOM – are typically the most noticeable about the problem.

C AUSE(S) – the underlying elements responsible for creating problem.

O UTCOME – the goal or desired state that will take care of the symptoms.

R ESOURCES – the elements responsible for creating and maintaining outcome.

E FFECT – the reason or motivation for wanting the outcome in the first place. Some say the ‘E’ is for ecology – the effect this will have on others and the circumstances of the person’s life.
