- Laurent - "thinking tool" - nicely said.
Tools provide leverage - tools can build or destroy.
On a seminar call this evening I heard,
"A hammer can build hospitals and
a hammer can send someone to the hospital."
In my training and coaching I introduce the simpler canonical form:
a <role> can do a <task> |to achieve <value>|
It's just a tool for being clear about the beneficiary and the what with the why being optional if it's no self-evident in context.
I also use Bill Wakes's I.N.V.E.S.T. acronym as a thinking tool.
The rest is the details of the specific story in the specific context.
