There's nothing more frustrating than working hard... in the wrong direction
To avoid this problem, start every new initiative or project with a repeatable discovery process. For work that is already underway, pause and make sure everyone is clear on the why, who and outcomes. If they are not, take some time to complete discovery before continuing.
In this guide, we provide you with an approach for facilitating a collaborative discovery meeting and a tool to use during the meeting to get clear on the why before doing the work to deliver the solution.
