When making a decision or thinking about the future, we usually see the worst or the best possible outcome for it.
The purpose of this method is to make you think about scenarios in between.
As a group, fill out the table (see attached file) with best and worst scenarios, then explore options in between.
After the table is filled out, discuss each option.
Usual or Expected Outcomes: Description of the worst and the best scenarios and a number of options in between
How success is evaluated: List of scenarios; participants aware that there is not just the worst and the best scenario but always options in between
