Pyramid Principle and Structural Thinking Training

Why does the other person just plainly asks, “What exactly are you trying to say?”, when we express ourselves endlessly.
Why do we have something in mind, but don’t know how to present it clearly to the other person?
Why do our E-mails make the other person confused?

The reason is that we lack structural thinking, making it difficult for the other person to sort out our logic. Finally, he or she may think that we have no logic.

Once we are deemed illogical, our career will be greatly affected; and we have no opportunity for promotion, raises or important positions. This is a bad condition.

In fact, this problem can be easily solved by measuring structural thinking tools. This curriculum will enable you to master the core concepts and tool of pyramid theory in one day. If you can practice using this tool over and over again in the following time, you will be more competent in the workplace.

Top 3 Elements of Thinking by Pyramid Principle

  • Opening activity
  • Video discussion
  • Top 3 elements:
    • Objective: why sort out such information
    • Object: for whom such information is sorted out
    • Scene: in what work/life scene

Core Thinking Framework of Pyramid Principle

  • To import basic framework: case analysis
  • Introduction to the overall framework of pyramid principle
    • Conclusion first
    • Generalized upper-level thought
    • Classification and grouping
    • Logical progression
  • Vertical and horizontal structures of Pyramid principle
    • Longitudinal structure deduction and summary (PRES)
      • Up-down why so?
      • Bottom-up so what?
      • Application of longitudinal structure in communication
    • Horizontal structure classification and sorting
      • Three principles of classification (purposeful, advanceable and MECE)
      • Three methods of classification (time, element and degree)

Commonly-used Thinking Frameworks (Classification Method)

  • Matrix thinking framework (to classify information by 2 axes)
  • 5W2H thinking framework (a very important thinking framework that can be applied in many fields)
  • Timeline thinking framework (the most user-friendly tool for process optimization and reconstruction)
  • Venn diagram thinking framework (a special type of classification that certainly does not conform to the MECE principle)

Brief Summary: Drawing a Structure Diagram for the Curriculum

  • Basic flow for diagrammatizing text information
    • To find out key words
    • To determine the logical correlation between key words
    • To express the correlation with lines/arrows
  • Drawing a structure diagram for the full-day curriculum by the group


  • To be able to repeat the top 3 elements, write your thinking goals on this basis and use them as anchors for thinking;
  • To be able to classify and sort information by the 3 principles of information classification to make it better serve your own thinking goals;
  • To organize into a thinking framework and draw a logical framework based on the former 2 steps;
  • To be able to list the applicable scenes and values of 4 common thinking frameworks for future use.
