On this weeks edition of #MiroverseMondays, I thought I'd experiment with videoing the Miro template rather than just a written description. Today, we cover Card brainstorming by Matthew Stephens at The Zebra

When should you use this template?

  • Do you have a problem your team need to solve?

  • Would you like to experiment with different prioritisation techniques in a visual way?

Then try the Card brainstorming template.

About this template

It will take you through step by step in defining, investigating, prioritising and determining actions to resolve your problem.

Step 1 - Identify problems

Step 2 - Frame your statements

Step 3 - Brainstorm new ideas

Step 4 - Prioritise ideas by effort / priority

Step 5 - Confirm actions and your next experiments

What I like about this template

  • It's customer focused. Each problem begins with identifying your strengths as well as how you might bring value to the customer

  • It provides a visual experience for those involved as opposed to many prioritisation techniques which can often be auditory or written exercises

  • Prioritisation achieves a similar outcome to WSJF - Weighted shortest job first, although without numerical variables, this should still help teams identify the things that will deliver the most value in the shortest time

  • It's a great option for remote teams who aren't able to cluster around a whiteboard and dot vote

What would I change about this template?

  • I'd build in an icebreaker at the beginning related to problem solving to warm up the team

  • I'd re-word 'actions' at the end as 'Experiments'

Credit again to Matthew Stephens and The Zebra, and to Miro for hosting on the Miroverse. Link to the template cab be found in the comments. Why not experiment with this template with your teams?
