What is this for?
The assumption mapper is a tool designed to help you identify and prioritize your key assumptions about desirability, viability and feasibility.
The key to de-risking your innovation project is not just identifying the riskiest assumptions — the ones that if invalidated would kill your project — but also figuring out which ones are the easiest to test.
Individually write down 4 key assumptions about desirability, viability and feasibility (10 min).
Share your assumptions and build on each other’s assumptions (15 min).
Identify which assumptions are critical by asking yourself: If this assumption were invalidated, would it kill our project (15 min)?
Focus on the critical assumptions and identify which ones would be easy or difficult to test (10 min).
Agree with the team on which assumptions you will test first based on your assumption map (10 min).
