Element 39. Lack of Showstoppers > Where to Find This Answer

Where to Find This Answer

The range of possibilities here is extensive. First of all, the odds are quite high that you deserve a 10 here. However if there is such a thing confronting you, score your idea below a 5. If the showstopper has some genuine penalties such as financial or physical, consider a negative score depending upon the penalty.

Showstoppers are often legal in nature. Look for laws, treaties, or administrative policies in government agencies that could prevent you from accomplishing your objective. There are also significant possibilities relating to access to distribution and critical suppliers. Note also the potential difficulties created by user groups or other customer alliances that favor your competition. This is what it feels like when someone has inspired their legislator to insert some protective language into a statute. They create a showstopper for people like you.
