These links will introduce to a variety of models that have been illustrated in order to make them more transparent and testable in the field of everyday practice. A vital feature of Model Building is "Constraint." Constraint is the creative tension that is generated between two different theories, methods, approaches or models.
It is both a core principle and an essential practice of Cross Model Conversation. In it, when models disagree on some point of presentation or application, each "pushes back" on the other. Constraint is a powerful creative process that is central to Strategic Model Building.

I use Models Illustrated to make models more transparent and testable in the field of everyday practice. Helping people "Draw Out" their models permits them see their models more clearly and fully. As a result, people can more consciously notice gaps between what they say they do and what they actually do. They can also address how the model changes when the stakes go up, or realize that they really don't have a model that they can rely on.
