GTD - Workshop

The GTD - Workshop (= "Getting Things Done") is a great opportunity to work concentrated in pre-defined tasks. The project team works in 90 min. sessions on the tasks and reflect the output. All the results will be documented. Examples are:

  • A GTD - Workshop can be used to plan experiments in detail based on the results of the Design Workshop. Let's say you want to talk to customers and users. There are a lot of things to do. During the workshop, you can discuss the selection of interviewees, make appointments, come up with a guideline, define customer investments and discuss appropriate prototypes.

  • Building prototypes is a great exercise for a GTD - Workshop. Here, we reconsider the results from the Design Workshop and define requirements for prototypes of different kinds to support experiments. In time boxed sessions of 90 min., we define, visualise and even implement prototypes based on the purpose agreed on earlier. Make sure a product designer or prototyping expert is in the room!
