Extract the maximum amount of information from a single factor.
The Appreciation tool provides a formal framework that you can use to Drill Down and extract additional information quickly, effectively, and reliably.
To use the Appreciation tool:
Step 1: Start with an important fact about your problem (use the Factors tool).
Step 2: Ask the question “So what?” (i.e. What are the implications of that fact?).
Step 3: Then keep on asking the question (“So what?”) until you have drawn out all of the possible inferences.
