How to use the Ideation Workshop Template?

This ideation session template can be used by Product Managers or Product Designers, to facilitate brainstorming on how to solve a specific issue. Anyone in your company can participate. For even better ideas, you can invite end users to participate. The ideal size is 4 or 5 participants, plus the animator. The workshop ideation can be done in face to face or remotely.

The content ideation template is composed of several steps:

  1. Explain the agenda of the session
  2. Ask every participant to present themselves in 1 minute.
  3. A warm-up activity. The goal of this activity is to open the participants' minds and break the barrier of drawing. As a facilitator, you can participate too.
  4. Voice of Customer: present the problem the brainstorming session tries to solve, with verbatims from your users, and some statistics if you have them. Ideally, participants are informed about this problem BEFORE the session and were asked to do some research on their side (competitors, best-in-class tools, ideas for potential solutions, etc.)
  5. Crazy 8 activity. Participants have 1 minute to draw some ideation sketches that are displaying a solution to the problem. Then they must sketch another one for 1 other minute etc. 8 times.
  6. Pooling the ideas. Participants send a picture of their sketches to the Wooclap Open question. Each participant briefly presents their ideation sketches. Let other participants react to those ideas, that's when the best ideas emerge! Keep an eye on the timing so each participant can present their ideas.
  7. Thank participants. As a follow-up to the workshop, you can ask them to fill in the satisfaction survey that is available with the template in the Participant Pace section.
