Idea Doodles

By now you should have the beginnings of a few ways to solve this problem, this is a chance to start exploring those ideas without a specific focus.


  • Estimated time needed: 7 minutes
  • Team: Facilitator, Note-taker, Stakeholders

Why should we do this exercise?

This is the first chance that everyone will have had to sketch out an idea that they may already have. Something that get jotted down in this session could become a great idea later on.


Now it is time to get visual. Look at the problem area or solution you have been mind mapped about. This time try not to write anything about it but doodle interesting ideas or solutions instead. Ugly is OK, no one will see this!


  • With a minute to go circle the most interesting things that you've just drawn.
