STEPS

1.START:
State the selected “How Might We” statement or a sub-focus area of it.

2.IDENTIFY:
Based on your HMW statement or the focus of what you are interested in, define the criteria and select the suitable participants.

3.PREPARE:
Organize a meeting with the selected participants, and prepare the results of the idea generation by printing out the full list of ideas in cards or Post-its (visual way). Gather the necessary resources and supplies. Think about what expectations will be set up-front, how you will start and end the workshop, and how much time participants are expected to dedicate to this activity.

4.CONDUCT:
Use all the collected ideas, categorize them and display them on a table or wall. Now is time to narrow them down by selecting the most valuable ideas/solutions. This is done by each participant voting with a Dot. Each participant receives 3-4 votes to use.

5.REPORT:
Calculate the votes and the ideas with most points are taken further in the design process. Discuss the results and write up the key outcomes from this exercise.
