I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve used (and shared) this Lean Inception agenda template. That’s why I share it to make your life easier, my dear fellow Lean Inception facilitator.

Agenda Template 1

On this agenda, the feature brainstorming happens before showing the user journeys. This is useful if you want the features creation/ideation to be very influenced by the business goals and personas needs. In this agenda, the User Journeys and then the Journeys & Features are used for validating and/or showing where we expect the feature to improve the user experience.

Agenda Template 2

On this agenda, the feature brainstorming happens right after the User Journeys activity. This is useful if you want the features creation/ideation to be very influenced by the user journeys.

Which agenda template do you use?

As a rule of thumb, if I am seeking more innovative ideas, I select the agenda template 1. Otherwise, if I want to influence the brainstorming by the user journeys, I’ll go for the agenda template 2. For remote workshops I have been mainly using the agenda template 2.

 

DISCLAIMER: This agenda is flexible, and the the activity sessions may be adjusted depending on the information we gather along the way. The workshop outcome is more important than a specific session goal.  The facilitator should adjust a specific session to better fit the desired outcome for the workshop.
