Here are four possible futures based on two variables: Team Velocity and Team Alignment
- Quadrant: Heaven- High Team Velocity and High Team Alignment
- Quadrant: Hell- Low Team Velocity and Low Team Alignment
- Quadrant: Purgatory- High Team Velocity and Low Team Alignment
- Quadrant: Limbo- Low Team Velocity and High Team Alignment
- Break into small teams (or do together) and describe if you walked into each of these quadrants five years from now, what it would be like in terms of: Employees, Leadership, Teams, Process, Technology, Customers, Suppliers, Etc.
- Repeat for each of the four scenarios and share the stories together.
- Return to each quadrant and discuss what would have to happen for you to get from where you are today to that particular future. Again, share the stories.
- Finally, brainstorm from what you've learned what you really want to have happen this year and for the next four years.
- Over time break these ideas into projects with owners.
