  • This format can be done with small or large groupsYou need two people at least, a moderator and a note taker. Three is best, some one to watch the customer and step in if there is an issue. It’s good for startup teams to all go.
  • This is a photo that represents a real activity: make a board, put the features down as you think the customer would want them/you plan to execute them. Customer can trade, crate new ones but CANNOT put more items in a given box.Don’t be tempted to do S/M/L, this will take you off track. If a large group, then rather than post-its, just edit onscreen.
  • Sign them up. Don’t forget the Ikea affect.
  • Note they get bigger into the future. That’s because you can do more stuff in the future. LIMIT!6-8 things in box one, 10-15 in box 2, 20ish in box three.

  • A little about us… The Company Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. The Product Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" Our Value It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy.

  • I learned this methodology from George Seiters at LinkedIn. I have since simplified it, and made the roadmapping interactive. Anyone who can, should hire George www.linkedin.com/in/georgeseiters If you fail to hire him, you can give me a ring. cwodtke@eleganthack.com @cwodtke | Christina Wodtke | cwodtke.com | eleganthack.com | Creative Commons Share Alike
