Backwards-mapping is a thought exercise applied to the impact plan to test for validity. It involves starting with the impact, and working backwards through the plan, asking at each step, “What is needed before this?” Always working forwards through an impact can lend itself to tunnel-thinking. Backwards-mapping can help open up awareness of elements that might be missing, or gaps in the logic.
