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 ‘Important Themes’ questions. These ‘Important Themes’ 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.
