Basic Stormz Workshops
$100 - Select the best options
A smart and fun decision-making workshop. Add your own options and ask people to spend a virtual $100 budget on the options they like the most. Using money, even if virtual, gives a very interesting dynamic.
2x2 Matrix - Categorize your ideas
The power of the 2x2 Matrix, Lowy, and Hood show that the 2x2 matrix lets you exploit the tension between 2 opposing forces as the prime source of problem-solving energy and direction. The 2x2 matrix helps you compare items by two independent attributes and to categorize them in four distinct quadrants.
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.
New, Useful, Feasible - Evaluate ideas, prototypes or strategies
The NUF evaluation is a decision making technique used to evaluate a set of options (ideas, prototypes, new products, market segments) along with three criteria:
New: is it new? Is it innovative?
Useful: does it solve an important problem or fulfill a real need?
Feasible: is it feasible? Do we have the opportunity, the skills, money or time to do it?
Then, based on the evaluation results, the team will try to find ways to improve the different options.
Post Lesson Reflection - Boost Learning by Reflecting Together on an Exercise
Studies prove that reflecting on an exercise or a lesson gives up to 20% better learning results.
This is a 2 steps session that alternates individual reflection and collective sharing around 4 questions:
What was easy about the exercise?
What was difficult about the exercise?
What strategies did I use to solve the problem?
What did I learn?
Retro’KISS - Quickly reflect on the past
Retro’KISS is a quick & simple retrospective technique that will help us to formalize the lessons we can learn from our recent experience and identify improvement actions.
Retro’KISS is a simpler alternative to the other more sophisticated Retrospective templates.
This workshop is part of our *KISS** (Keep it simple & stupid!) collection: Simple and straightforward sessions that we can run in no time.*. These templates are also well adapted for running *asynchronous online** sessions.*
