Great thread @Gernot. I love your take on the business owner and Gary as the IC. I came up with a similar storyform.
Goal of Learning makes a lot of sense @jhull and Inaction sounds like a pretty description of the problem. And that instant scene is eerie!
When I first saw this thread I immediately (before reading @Gernot's post) that it would be a Concern of Progress (we have to manage the Progress of this virus -- if it progresses too fast, we'll overwhelm the hospitals, which is why we have to "flatten the curve" etc.)
Consequences of Preconscious: if we can't figure this out, everyone is going to lose their sh*t and society will collapse.
Issue of Threat or Security seem pretty good too. If it's Security, the question is how much should we lock down and for how long?
Focus/Direction: Effect -> Cause -- The effects of this are a disaster; but who's causing this? Who is to blame?
Problem: Result -- The ramifications of this virus are bad; any action you take to respond or not respond has long-ranging, bad consequences.
Solution: Process -- This is going to be a long process, but we're going to have to find a way to get through it (and trust the scientific process). Part of that is figuring out how to keep society running (process) while things work themselves out. (Also keep your business running).
Taking off from the comic, as Gernot said, the MC is the business owner and Gary is the IC. For the MC side, the business owner as Physics/Doing -- how do I keep my business running? The IC has a Drive of Accurate: "Perspective first--be grateful if you and the people you love are healthy" (you have to find a way to tolerate and be patient in this situation).
The Crucial Element requires the MC to move from Result to focusing on the Process (getting through this).
@MWollaeger -- I agree on the first Driver. My OS has Past as the first signpost -- there's an attempt to hide/ignore what happened. OS 2 is Future -- people failing to prepare for what they should know is coming. Etc.
I have: Conceiving: "Safety and family" (having the right idea about this)
Becoming: "Your business is going to be affected"
My last two are out of order though.
It's an interesting thought exercise.
We're all home too -- still allowed to go out, but things are shutting down.
Hope everyone is staying safe out there.
