- What were the general circumstances that led to a VPEC-T analysis?
- How did you bound the conversation – did you use a model or canvas to help focus-in?
- How did you conduct the VPEC-T analysis – a workshop (how many participants?), 1-on-1, or other?
- Which dimension (i.e. V-P-E-C-T) did you start with and which dimension(s) stimulated the most insights?
- What were the main barriers to getting the conversation going or issues that became a stumbling-block? How did you overcome?
- What was the nature of the output/insights from the session and where/how did VPEC-T add the most value in surfacing them?
Not surprisingly, I’ve used VPEC-T in many different scenarios, sometimes explicitly, and sometimes as a, non-disclosed, mental model, for analysing at a problem or opportunity. The most valuable feedback to me, however, has always come from others – their unimagined (by me!) challenges and circumstances. Ever since my original blog post in 2007, I’ve been keen to share and develop the thinking publicly (despite pressures to do otherwise!). Can I encourage others to do the same? I guess I’ll see. Any better ideas on soliciting feedback always welcome! (thought to self: I wonder if I could find a way to use Dave Snowden’s Sensemaker tool?).
