Heat-map – Scenario Matrix Validation Chart – All data

Heat-map – Scenario Matrix Validation Chart – All data

This chart provides a method to validate the preferred future created via the heat maps. This ‘Scenario Matrix Validation Chart’ is created by building a preferred future from the answers to the ‘Focus Area’ questions. These ‘Focus Area’ questions are subsets of the scenario axes, and by recombining each person’s answers we create a unique X, Y average.

This approach generates a notional Preferred Future, but one based on likely response to issues and expected behaviour in real-life. This provides a validation of the Preferred Future response based on the heat map diagram.

Key things to note:

  • The results cluster strongly in a similar location to the Preferred Future identified on the heat maps.
  • This is a very encouraging validation that suggests behaviour will mirror aspiration.
