Fun with Tetrads - Extend, Flip, Obsolesce and Retrieve a Concept


TETRAD is a 2X2 canvas where participants have to answer these questions:

  • EXTEND: What might it improve or make possible?
  • OBSOLESCE: What might it supplant, replace, or eliminate?
  • RETRIEVE: What might it revive, bring back from the past?
  • FLIP: What unexpected problems or opportunities might it create?

This framework is used to explore and augment a concept.

Inspired by the 2015 Mindcamp session presented by Tim Hurson & Franca Leeson
