One final model we will explore is one which is designed to be used on yourself. The main difference between this and the ACE model is the addition of a final stage recognising for bigger visions we are often moving to a new interim closer state in our planning rather than planning a full solution. This is therefore a circular model in which after first steps are taken the cycle starts again.
- State of play – what is the situation you are wanting to address? What motivates change?
- Envisioned future – what would you like the outcome to achieve, look and feel like?
- Look for the route – how will you move forward? What bumps in the road might you expect?
- First steps – what is the smallest thing you can do now to make progress towards your future?
