The purpose of this tool is to anticipate where your proposed goal, problem definition, idea or solution is going to energize a reaction, positive or negative. Then seek help where you can get it, and plan for resistance before you encounter it.
What are all the factors — people, places, timing, and parallel efforts — that might assist your solutions?
What might be all of the reasons or factors (both emotional and logical) which could energize resistance?
What might be all of the ways to gain acceptance or build enthusiasm?
What might help guarantee success?
What are the deal breakers and what trades might you make to overcome them?
Write an exhaustive list of everyone and everything that might impact — for better or worse — the success of your solution. When you write your strengthened solution, keep this list of assisters and resisters handy and incorporate these factors into your solution.
