VIDEO: Tool 3.3: Plan Preference Interview Candidates
Plan your Preference Interview candidates using Tool 3.3 within Blueprinter software.
Planning your Preference Interview candidates in Blueprinter software is virtually identical to how it was done within Step 2. The main difference is that whereas in Step 2, we were concerned about getting a complete set of outcomes, in Step 3, we're now concerned with getting them prioritized correctly. In Step 2, we pushed for a diverse sample to ensure that we didn't miss any outcomes. Conversely, in Step 3, we want our sample to be representative of our targeted market segment.
