Personalized Tactics: Scenario Planning Processes

  2. Cognitive interviews (more helpful in accuracy of content recall)
  3. Building memories of the futures is crucial  for content recall (includes memorable scenario names and vivid dramatizations) 
  4. Mental imaginings are accompanied by physical actions
  5. Data collection filters to be utilised (compatibility, cohesiveness,& credibility)
