KnoWonder - List What We Know & What We Wonder
KnoWonder is a simple yet powerful tool that will enable us to quickly capture what we know about our topic what we are still wondering about it.
Then, we will know what we don't know and be able to plan data collection accordingly.
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.
POWER - Power-up your ideas!
POWER is a tool that we will use to power-up the most appealing solution that came from our ideation session.
POWER asks five basic questions:
Positives: What’s good about the idea? Why might it succeed?
Objections: What are the idea’s flaws? Why might it fail?
What else?: What else might be in the idea that hasn’t been articulated yet?
Enhancements: How might the positives be made even stronger?
Remedies: How might the objections be overcome?
By answering these questions, we will be able to come up with an improved solution.
This activity usually takes place during:
The Forge the Solutions phase of a Productive Thinking project
The Formulate Solutions phase of a Creative Problem Solving project
The Ideate or Prototype phase of a Design Thinking project
The Improve phase of a Six Sigma DMAIC project
An Interactive Event, or meeting, as a way to give quick feedback after a presentation of a project or a strategy
Wall of Time - Quickly list and organize the tasks of a project
The Wall of Time is a tool used to quickly organize a list of all the possible tasks and subtasks required to implement a (previously defined) solution. One of the interesting aspects of this tool is that only the future implementer of a task can decide to move it to the final planning. This activity usually takes place during:
An early Planning phase of any kind of Project
The Align Resource phase of a Productive Thinking project
The Formulate the Plan phase of a Creative Problem Solving project
As a Closing activity of an Interactive Event or meeting
