I recently ran an experiment and created a 'format' for my training class to form better actions from their learning, as I was getting frustrated at hearing "I am going to do X" without knowing the why. So I posted two variations in a LinkedIn post to canvas people's opinions.
I proposed two options:
- Problem to be solved - what I will do - biz outcome I will achieve
- Biz outcome I will achieve - what I will do - problem to be solved
I also ran a poll to see which people liked best. I prefer two, as starting with the outcome felt more aline with BLUF and the way I remember writing my resume using the MT method. However, it only scored 25% of the votes, which surprised me.
As this community will be aware of the BLUF and the resume writing advice, I was interested in your views. Considering the intent of the 'format' was to be used in a training session (with the thought it might have more utility outside of the classroom), which do you prefer and why?
Thank you for your input to my thought experiement.
