How Does the Action Wheel Really Work?

Basic information about the Action Wheel always includes attention to the “six dimensions of action:"

  • Meaning -"Why are we doing this?"
  • Mission - "Where are we going?"
  • Power - "Who is driving this?"
  • Existence - "What is the current reality?"
  • Structure - "How will we do this?"
  • Resources - "What do we need”?

We also assert that, as a decision-making tool, the Action Wheel process works equally well in your professional and personal life.
