So you crowdsourced a bunch of job statements, now what?

When ____, I want to _________ so I can _________.
  1. The statements made up. The team is guessing at the motivations of others, which runs the risk of devolving into stereotypes or assumptions.
  2. Whenever we brainstorm or generate options, we need to follow on with some means of validating or prioritizing what we’ve generated. It’s too easy to come up with job statements, so we can burn a lot of time trying to then whittle down our list. Better to focus generative activities on solutions, not problems.

An excerpt from a book mentioning something I’d said before. Yes, I’m citing a book that cites me.
  • the circumstances we’re designing for (the when), and
  • how we will measure whether our solution is successful (the so I can)

So what do I do with the statements I generated before I read this?

But wait! How else could we involve stakeholders if not this?
