Noticed this strategy-as-problem-solving process from The Crux and I wanted to summarise it in a way easier to remember:
- Collect problems and opportunities to avoid focusing on the first thing that comes to mind;
- Cluster into related groups (aka Affinity Mapping);
- Filter for what needs to be dealt with now vs later;
- Filter based on importance versus addressability (a slight variant of an Impact Effort Matrix);
- Identify action Alternatives.
