Build it, break it,
fix it

Collaboratively develop an idea, expand upon it, and then test its strength. Use it to grow your vision. Then tear it down and re-build.

What is this for?

The Build it, break it, fix it toolkit was designed to collaboratively develop an idea as a team.

In this exercise, different team members are asked to look at the idea from different concepts and to build upon each others work. The goal is to iterate in order to refine the original concept.
