Step 4 - Is it a Problem Worth Solving?

Now using the feedback from the customer focus groups, quantitative research or expert panel, prioritise the PBTP’s based on Problem Relevance and Commitment to Solve.

Each person folds their template into a cube, with the PBTP facing outwards, and together with their PROBLEM BOARD presents their PBTP to the team or panel to convince them they have captured the most relevant problems that people are desperate to solve.

The team then debates all the PBTP’s and prioritises each cube versus another. In multi-team situations the Reply® wireless voting tool is an effective method of prioritising.

Once the prioritisation is finalised, the team select one PBTP from the green quadrant, and each person captures that problem on box D of their template, (using a bold pen or another colour) or on a fresh template. Teams can choose to work on more than one PBTP, if time permits.
