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 ‘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.

Key things to note:

  • Of interesting note in this chart is the strong concentration of responses within the ‘Indispensable Health Allies’ scenario.
  • The size of the circle in the chart represents the number of responses in that specific location.
  • This data supports the alignment around the preferred future, and provides some confidence that decision making will reflect the orientation towards the preferred future.
