Agile Solution Building

Agile Solution Building (filled)

Description

The Agile Solution Building template helps develop solutions informed by your entire team. This process is also typically referred to as “brainwriting,” and it helps ensure that every idea is informed by the perspective of each team member.

 

In the above example, we outlined a scenario where a team is brainstorming how they can evolve their customer experience.

 

Each member begins by creating an initial idea that could improve the customer experience. Some relate to improving their onboarding process, while others a better dashboard or marketplace layout. As the ideas get passed around, each person is able to add some unique value to the initial idea and help evolve it into a final suggestion. After the process is finished, you can reflect on each stage of the evolution and the solution that the team proposes at the end.

 

Below is a step-by-step instructional guide for completing an Agile Solution Building exercise with your team.

Instructions

  1. Have each of your participants designate a specific note color for their contributions to make it obvious who is working on what. Have everyone document an initial idea in their first box for people to work off of.
  2. Moving diagonally to the bottom right, have everyone iterate on the box previously completed until everyone reaches the bottom. By doing this, your entire team gets to work on each other’s ideas and can brainstorm about multiple different ideas/solutions.
