POWER is a tool that we will use to power-up the most appealing solution that came from our ideation session.
POWER asks five basic questions:
By answering theses questions, we will be able to come up with an improved solution.
This activity usually takes place during:
The Productive Thinking model is a six-step problem-solving and opportunity-finding methodology that builds on 50 years of research by the Creative Education Foundation, 30 years of research by NASA, and five years of field testing. It combines the situation analyses and ideation strengths of CEF’s methodology with the success criteria and project mapping techniques of NASA’s iDEF methodology.
Please formulate the initial solution, the one that you want to Power-Up in 1 to 3 sentences.
You can also attach any additional documents that might be needed for the session.
Analyze your initial solution:
Please create one card for each contribution.
Now it is time to improve your idea:
Again, write-down each contribution on a separate card.
Highlight the most important items by giving them from one point (important) to three points (critical).
Based on all your previous thinking, can you formulate your Powered-Up solution?
