Douglas over a million monkeys typing has done another template which help you listing different paths and tasks to achieve a goal or bigger problem/task. It is sometimes useful because it forces you to brainstorm for alternatives even though you have one answer for a question. As Douglas quoted in Roger van Oech’s book Whack on the Side of the Head:
Much of our educational system has taught us to look for the one right answer. This approach is fine for some situations, but many of us have a tendancy to stop looking for alternative right answers after the first one has been found. This is unfortunate because often it’s the second, or third, or tenth right answer which is what we need to solve a problem in an innovative way.
This is so true and the template should able to help.
